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. Was last week's volatility jump just another short-lived blip on the radar or is the frequency of these spells showing a bigger change at work? Risk trends and speculative appetites are a key catalyst that is increasingly exacting its influence over the capital markets and majors. A strategy for both status quo and heavy risk swells is necessary. Meanwhile, the docket is littered with events that promise to sustain and amplify interest rate forecasts - for better or worse. Events like the US and Aussie CPI, BoE Minutes, UK GDP and RBNZ rate decision are top teir this week.
