The countdown to the Fed's decision Thursday is ticking loudly across the global financial markets, but the US policy view isn't the only game in town. While speculation surrounding the Fed's bearings leveraged two-year Treasury yields and the Greenback this past session - and will likely experience another bout of volatility after the upcoming US CPI figures - we are passing through fundamental highlights that shape monetary policy bearings for most of the majors. This past session, we absorbed a BoJ rate decision, UK inflation (BoE), the RBA's minutes and ECB President Draghi's remarks on possible QE expansion. Ahead, we have UK jobs data, New Zealand GDP and the SNB gathering. Be on guard for fundamentally-derived volatility swells across the FX market; but don't lose site of the heavy-hitting event risk Thursday that has the capacity to change the current on investor sentiment itself. We keep track of the fires in today's Trading Video.
