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. Risk trends and monetary policy expectations are the two dominant drivers in the FX markets. While speculative appetites will always be a factor, this week's event risk caters to weighing rate hikes versus stimulus upgrades on a range of policy meetings and key data releases. Currency traders are focusing on Thursday's ECB decision - expected to end with a rate cut, new stimulus, targeting lending and/or other measures - but there is event risk tapping into all of the major central banks' agendas this week.
