When market activity increases - as it has these past few weeks - the tendency is for traders to intensify their focus and zoom in on short-term developments. However, it is precisely when underlying conditions shift that we should look at the bigger picture to better appreciate the opportunities before us. That may be a large technical pattern that can't be appreciated on a hourly chart, a correlation missed on a daily chart or even a fundamental theme that can only be seen over an extended period. In today's Strategy Video, we look at the higher time frames for EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, USDJPY, VIX and more.
