Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. With the dramatic plunge from the Dollar the past Friday in the aftermath of a payrolls miss that compares to the worst of the Great Financial Crisis, the Greenback would be first focus heading into the new trading week. Rate expectations for the Fed plummeted after the labor statistics, and the central bank's efforts to direct expectations for a follow up rate hike was thrown into jeopardy. Janet Yellen's speech was the last stop before the official pre-FOMC blackout began for the June 15 meeting. Meanwhile, Brexit volatility would not let up with yet another dramatic move in the Pound to start the week. The general stability will not hold back a tide of increasingly troubled event risk, so what should we monitor and how should we adapt our trading. We discuss the key fundamental themes to follow and means for balancing our risk in this recording of Monday's Fundamental webinar.
