John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

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

Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. These sessions are held live every Monday at 16:30 GMT. In the absence of fear and a drive to deleverage, the markets have reverted to the most familiar trend - a bullish drive into risk. Yet, where the S&P 500 has breached record highs, other risk measures - like yen crosses, the dollar and Emerging Markets - seem unconvinced. Are we destined for a slow drift or incisive risk-based move? That is the focus of this week's discussion.
