• A risk impact is the more nuanced aspect of this data for the Dollar and S&P 500

With sentiment trends engaged and the market acclimating to a Taper world, the USDollar finds itself in a vulnerable spot with another big-ticket economic torrent set for release. What should we expect from the data and markets? We cover the NFP impact in today's Strategy Video.
