  • Activity levels present opportunities beyond just a dollar rally and yen cross reversal
  • Volatility levels will determine the optimal strategy approach and other critical elements of our plan

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. The Dollar avoided a potentially disastrous break last week thanks to the drain in liquidity - more often a burden. Now, whether the greenback can use this opportunity to feed a broader recovery depends heavily on one of the most important systemic market themes traders have recently had to deal with: the return of volatility. We discuss how critical this ingredient is to our trading and what other opportunities are presenting themselves this week.
