There is little doubt that a Fed move to tighten policy or a rift undermining the stability of the Eurozone would threaten the global markets with instability. As popular as these concerns are as of late, they aren't the only active concerns for the broader system - and they may not even be the most systemic. China has positioned itself as one of the most systemically important economies and markets with measures showing the largest contribution to global GDP post Great Financial Crisis along with a massive contribution to global stimulus to support investor sentiment.

We discuss why and how China represents a risk that all FX and global investors should be aware of in today's Strategy Video.
