Talking Points:

In a sea of heavy, high-profile event risk; we look at the three most pressing events and the three most at-risk currencies in the week ahead. For scale, the Federal Reserve's monetary policy meeting is the most important item on the agenda. A nine-week rally for the US Dollar raises the bar for the currency impact, but monetary policy from the world's largest central bank can tap even deeper fundamental wells. The Euro offers a direct juxtaposition with the first measurable upgrade to its balance sheet scheduled with the Thursday's Targeted LTRO auction. For sheer, concentrated volatility, Scotland's vote on independence from the United Kingdom will overshadow key event risk for BoE rate forecasting. We discuss these events and currencies in the weekend Strategy Video.
