Forex Strategy Video: How the Fed Can Still Affect the Dollar and Risk

Forex Strategy Video: How the Fed Can Still Affect the Dollar and Risk

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Some believe the mute response to the Fed's Taper December 18 signals stimulus withdrawal is priced in

• Record levels of leverage and extreme risk exposure present Taper as a serious threat to status quo

• For the dollar, the change in relative stimulus bearings may present a more consistent bid

When the Fed announced the long-awaited Taper back on December 18, the S&P 500 did something unexpected. It rose. Is the market immune to a withdrawal of support by the world's largest stimulus provider? It's unlikely. Given investors' exposure to leverage and 'higher risk' positions, the threat is palpable. In today's Strategy Video, we discuss how the Fed's policy bearing is still one of the most important elements to global risk trends; and how the dollar will fare as these fundamental theme seeps into traders' consciousness.
