Does Good or Bad Data Leverage More Dollar, Pound Reaction?

Does Good or Bad Data Leverage More Dollar, Pound Reaction?

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Markets don't always react to data and fundamentals as the textbooks would suggest

• One big foil in the market impact currently is how event risk shapes monetary policy expectations

• Furthermore, heavy speculation can leverage 'bullish' or 'bearish' scenarios as is the case of JPY, USD and GBP

What are the Traits of Successful Traders? See what our studies have found to be the most common pitfalls of retail FX traders.

Why is it that an inflation figure can generate a stronger response from a currency or equities market than a more comprehensive indicator like GDP? Why do 'good' outcomes generate far less volatility than an equivalent 'bad' result in some situations and the opposite in others? Fundamentals is not a fixed analysis as it is given context by what matters most to the market at large. We have discussed this directly and indirectly in previous videos and webinars, but we revisit this concept in today's Strategy Video with an eye to the two most hawkish (Dollar, Pound) and dovish (Yen, Euro) currencies amongst the majors the docket intensifies.
