Changes in Monetary Policy Standings this Week Can Generate Huge FX Trends

Changes in Monetary Policy Standings this Week Can Generate Huge FX Trends

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Monetary policy has been responsible for the bulk of the FX market's biggest moves this past year

• This week carries a dense round of event risk that can ramp, reverse or alter these dominant trends

• It will be important to separate the short-term impact of key data from its trend influence

Find out what scheduled event risk can threaten your trades or trigger volatility with the DailyFX Economic Calendar.

In the past year, EURUSD dropped 3,500 pips, GBPUSD has tumbled 2,600 pips and all of the Yen crosses have projected a second leg of a multi-year rally. Was the impetus for this drive 'risk' trends or growth expectations? While many factors have contributed to the 'majors' price developments these past months, the the most pervasive and capable driver has been monetary policy. We have seen this theme and the individual players' positions mature over the months, but we seem to be nearing an inflection point where existing trends can be seriously leveraged or ultimately reversed with the right motivation. It so happens that this week the docket is loaded with key scheduled event risk that can stir this critical theme. What should we be watching for and what are the current trends? We give a review of the coming storm in today's Strategy Video.
