DailyFX.com -

Talking Points:

• Volatility is still the greatest risk to the financial system with 'fear' measures slowly rising

• The top fundamental release this week is the BoE Quarterly Inflation report - a key Pound driver

• Another top billing currency will be the Euro which faces GDP figures to shape ECB stimulus expectations

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. Volatility has been the primary concern over the past weeks and will continue to be my first evaluation of the markets each morning. That said, this week started off on a more stable footing with activity measures slipping translating into a bounce in equity indexes and retreat from safe havens. Neither fundamental current or barometer readings look particularly convincing. Meanwhile, the economic calendar is fills out for two currencies in particular: the British Pound and Euro. The former will see its rate forecasts updated with the release of the BoE Quarterly Inflation report while the later absorbs 2Q GDP.
