The start to the fourth quarter will bring a heavy economic docket. The macro economic calendar for the upcoming session covers the kind of event risk that is capable of not only generating volatility for individual currencies and regions, but reviving broader sentiment trends as well. Conviction and bearing in sentiment is a key concern for investors given the slump of the past few months, and it has been cast in even deeper speculation with Wednesday's rebound.

We assess the risk and opportunity for a new day, month and quarter in today's Trading Video.
