Talking Points:

• The USDollar has advanced for 8 straight weeks - matching its longest run on records

• In the greenback's performance we are seeing the trouble in its counterparts

• The Scottish Referendum and ECB shift towards extreme dovishness have led EURUSD and GBPUSD to collapse

Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. We aren't lacking for FX-based volatility anymore. The majors are experiencing incredible trends, but the progress isn't sourced from the dollar. Exceptional moves from the likes of EURUSD and GBPUSD are derived from a material increase in dovishness from the ECB and a growing fear of Scotland's exit from the United Kingdom. Will these moves continue? Is there yet a fundamental theme not yet realized? What should we watch for? We discuss this and more in the Fundamental webinar.
