Strategy Video: How Central Banks Shape Your Trading

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Global stimulus continues to grow to record levels

• A swell in central bank support reduces perceived risk but it also encourages a chase for yield

• Monetary policy should shape our trading approach, and it can also present unique trade opportunities

Market conditions change, and our strategy should reflect those changes. We have coded the DailyFX-Plus strategies for Breakout, Range and Momentum to adapt to these market shifts.

One of the most ubiquitous aspects to the financial markets today is the presence of central banks. The monetary policy authorities' influence materially alters the investing and trading landscape - and we need to adapt to it and exploit it. With a swell in extraordinary monetary support, a perceived reduction in market risk pushes investor appetite higher. It also contributes to a frenzied chase for yield and likely the next shift in volatility. We can adjust our trading approach for this. Furthermore, FX traders recognize the influence relative efforts have on trends and trade habits for different currencies and pairs. It can be so specific as to give a clear level the market will not cross. We discuss this critical market influence in the weekend Strategy Video.
