Trading Video: Can the Return of Liquidity Reverse Volatility, Trends?

Trading Video: Can the Return of Liquidity Reverse Volatility, Trends?

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Holiday trading conditions sap speculative trends - and the FX market showed the effects

• Yet, how do we reconcile the unnatural quiet conditions going into the holiday and Europe's surge?

• Whether we return to the status quo or there is a material turn in activity, there are trading options

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.

What is the likelihood that yesterday's liquidity drain marks a turning point for a market already deprived of volatility and dependent on complacency? History says the probability is significant enough that we should be prepared with a strategy to take advantage of setups that have moved into place and are simply waiting for the right spark. In today's Trading Video, we look at the background market conditions, pairs well positioned for a volatility swell, those that would benefit from the status quo, and opportunities that are not dependent on risk trends at all.
