In this webinar I discuss the major data due over the coming week and how they will impact FX markets.

The second week of October should bring about a bit more volatility than what was experienced last week, as the calendar was devoid of meaningful economic data from most of the world's major economies.

While the case can be made that the same can be said of this week, pressure has been increasing in the Brexit sage, the Catalan independence movement, and around US President Trump's tax reform plan.

Accordingly, the news wire is the prime source of risk in the coming days, outside of isolated pockets of data and event risk from the United States.

Other topics covered include:

- Why was the September US Nonfarm Payrolls report one to look past, regardless of what the data revealed?

- As the US Dollar pulls back, why should traders be weary of committing to downside before the FOMC minutes on Wednesday?

- Has anything developed that would deter the ECB from announcing a taper to its QE program later this month?
