Talking Points:

• Not all of the scenarios look ideal through technical, fundamental and market condition analysis

• EURUSD is a medium-term opportunity, GBPUSD will struggle but the Yen crosses have better mix

In today's Strategy Video, we use a number of the concepts we have discussed recently (three analysis types, time frames, risk-reward, potential versus probability) and evaluate the trade potential for EURUSD, GBPUSD and the Yen crosses.
