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. The Dollar avoided a potentially disastrous break last week thanks to the drain in liquidity - more often a burden. Now, whether the greenback can use this opportunity to feed a broader recovery depends heavily on one of the most important systemic market themes traders have recently had to deal with: the return of volatility. We discuss how critical this ingredient is to our trading and what other opportunities are presenting themselves this week.
