Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. The US Dollar has taken a tumble this past week and much of the responsibility must be laid at the FOMC's feet. While rates were held, the downgrade in its projected pace of tightening bleeds some of the hefty premium the currency has enjoyed as it has built steam to its eventual first hike this past December. Yet, how much of the currency's lift is actually attributable to the Fed's own effort? Seen from another perspect, its major counterparts have drawn most of the contrast, and their bearings have not changed. Meanwhile, risk trends have extended an impressive rebound that has yet to capitulate. Conviction behind a rise in risk appetite is dubious however; and holiday liquidity conditions this week will reshape the landscape. We discuss the key underlying themes and their deeper implications in this webinar.
