Video: EURUSD and AUDUSD Imminent Volatility Candidates But Trends?
• Neither the underlying theme in risk trends nor the Dollar's mon pol advantage changed to start this week
• Greece is back in the headlines, but a supposed creditors' meeting may establish a clear make-or-break
• An RBA rate decision this morning seems to set up a clean AUDUSD trade, but be wary of assumptions

This past week, FX and global financial markets were under the direction of major themes. Those same themes are facing clear catalysts this week. To kick things off Monday, the Dollar's recent charge higher was put up against important event risk that speaks directly to the rate timing question that has both lifted and beleaguered the Greenback. The Fed's favored PCE reading disappointed with a multi-year low, but another inflation gauge (perhaps leading) contradicted it. Either way, the market seemed unfazed in its climb. An unexpected meeting was called by Greece's creditors Monday evening with a possible deal or negotiation stop awaiting us at the end of the discussion. Either way, any level of certainty for Greece may finally unleash a meandering Euro. In contrast, the RBA decision ahead is straightforward with timing and possible outcomes. Then again, the market response has proven very unconventional in the recent past. We discuss all of these major trends and event risks in today's Trading Video.
