In this webinar I discuss the major data due over the coming week and how they will impact FX markets.
Volatility should pick up in the coming days as several key themes, events, and data releases are converging all at once. Q3'17 GDP readings from the UK and the US will help shape policy expectations for the BOE and the Fed in different ways at the central banks' respective upcoming policy meetings.
Elsewhere, on Wednesday, the Bank of Canada will be in focus as rate hike odds for 2017 have evaporated in recent weeks. The most important event of the week comes on Thursday when the European Central Bank will meet and likely announce a taper to their QE program.
Other topics covered include:
- Why has the US Dollar momentum suddenly shifted back to the topside?
- How have politics suddenly reemerged as one of the more significant driving forces in FX markets?
