Forex Strategy Video: Dollar's Interest in Taper Intensifying

Forex Strategy Video: Dollar's Interest in Taper Intensifying

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Relative stimulus is quickly becoming the FX market's dominant theme and driver

• A combination of the Dollar and S&P 500 is no longer the best gauge of Taper speculation

• With NFPs due Friday, we may find the dollar on the opposite end of the spectrum to EUR and JPY

What kind of Trading best suits you? Technical or Fundamental? Short-term or Long-term? Take our Trader Survey and find out.

Relative stimulus effort is quickly supplanting general risk trends as the dominant force in the FX markets. And, at the top of the list for central banks; the Fed is still pulling its weight. As the ECB, BoJ and BoE monetary policy speculation intensifies, it stands to reason that the possibility and timing of the eventual Taper will grow in importance as well. That said, the means for measuring this fundamental scenario are changing as the implications for risk disconnect. In today's Forex Strategy Video, we discuss how to better track the market's Taper speculation and why it is key for the US dollar.
