Webinar: FX Week Ahead: Article 50, Fed Rate Hike, Aussie Jobs, BOE

Webinar: FX Week Ahead: Article 50, Fed Rate Hike, Aussie Jobs, BOE

Webinar Schedule for Week of March 12 to March 17, 2017

Monday, 7:30 EDT/12:30 GMT: FX Week Ahead: Strategy for Major Event Risk

Wednesday, 6:00 EDT/11:00 GMT: Trading Q&A

Thursday, 8:30 EDT/12:30 GMT: Central Bank Weekly

In this webinar I discuss the major data due over the coming week and how they will impact FX markets. For a technical outlook on recent moves in oil prices, read Currency Strategist James Stanley's morning piece.

After another strong US labor market report on Friday, rates markets are pricing in a 100% chance of a Fed hike this Wednesday. Yet beyond the hike which is already priced in, traders will be looking for explicit details over the pace of future tightening: should we be expecting a total of two hikes this year (currently priced in), or will there be three or more?

Elsewhere, focus will on the UK, where Prime Minister Theresa May may be granted authority to trigger Article 50 - an event that could come this week, in fact. With all signs pointing to a 'hard Brexit,' there's little reason left to wonder why the British Pound has been hit hard since the end of February. Should Article 50 be triggered, it would dramatically reduce the odds of the BOE doing anything at all this Thursday - a shift in policy would be viewed through a highly politicized lens that they'd like to avoid altogether.

Other topics covered include:

- Where does the Euro stand after the ECB's hawkish twist on Thursday?

- Will the Australian jobs data put an end to AUD/USD's slide?

- Are any opportunities available in CHF- and JPY-crosses around the SNB and BOJ this week, and if not, why not?
