Talking Points:

• Risk measures - equity indexes, yen crosses, volatility, etc - moderated heading into heavy event risk

• The British Pound is looking at the most pointed round of event risk lead by the BoE's Inflation Report

• Starting a growth update that will carry through to Thursday, Greek 2Q GDP is set to roust the Euro

We sort through the upcoming risk in today's Trading Video.
