Fundamental Forecast: Risk On Supports More FX Range Trading Than Trend

Fundamental Forecast: Risk On Supports More FX Range Trading Than Trend

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The appetite for risk seems insatiable - if shrouded in doubt

• While the S&P 500 continues to run to record highs on the sentiment lean, FX trends aren't so enticed

• Status quo equates to range trades for GBPUSD and Yen Crosses, but beware big themes

Find out what live events and webinars are scheduled this week with the DailyFX Live Webinar Calendar - including John's Trading Q&A in DailyFX-Plus.

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. Equity indexes are pressing to record highs, but skepticism seems to matching the rise step for step. The FX market doesn't seem as ready to bid into the questionable optimism, and range conditions are general the response to the sentiment bearing. This creates a situation where status quo generally holds markets to range. But, beware the major theme shifts. Though they seem low probability given complacent markets, their impact can be severe.
