Forex Forecast: Traders on Alert with Risk Trends, ECB, NFPs on Tap

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• An imbalance on risk potential will be exacerbated this week by the quarterly rollover

EURUSD will be a top fundamental player with the ECB rate decision Thursday and US NFPs Friday

• A BoJ tax hike and a smattering of UK data will help shake the yen and pound outlook

Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. These sessions are held live every Monday at 16:30 GMT. 'Am I comfortable holding a long risk position for the next three months?' That is the question that many investors will be making in passive funds this week as the rollover to the second quarter will encourage holdings reviews. Risk trends will always represent an active volcano seemingly dormant from the surface, but other fundamental tides will be immediately market moving this week. An ECB rate decision, US NFPs and Japanese tax hike this week represent a serious round of market-moving event risk.
