Forex Strategy Video: EURUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD - Wading Through Event Risk

Forex Strategy Video: EURUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD - Wading Through Event Risk

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• There is an abundance of fundamental event risk on tap, and it can be difficult to prioritize

• When two critical themes align, it can leverage volatility and trend

• We focus on EURUSD, USDJPY and AUDUSD between key headwinds for the dollar, Aussie, yen and euro

There is a lot of scheduled and unscheduled event risk this week - perhaps too much. How do we sort out which theme will override all others to determine direction for the market? When in doubt, follow the money. The more fundamental a theme is to directing the greatest amount of capital and investor sentiment, the more 'important' it is to determining price action. In today's Forex Strategy Video, we discuss a range of important themes - the possible US Government shutdown, the threat to Italy's coalition government, Japan's tax hike decision and the RBA rate decision - and how we can determine how to incorporate it into our trading plan.
