May 16, 2014

John Kicklighter

Talking Points:

** Risk trends and rate expectations are the most influential themes for the majors moving forward

** A skewed outlook for 'risk' finds the yen pairings most sensitive, but EURUSD could quickly follow suit

** The outlook for rate hikes and stimulus remains our most active driver with event risk on deck

DailyFX Analysts will cover some of the top fundamental event risk discussed in the video Live. Find out which events you can attend live with the DailyFX Webinar Calendar.

If you are trading the core 'majors', it is important to analyze your setups through the market's top two fundamental themes: risk trends and monetary policy forecasts. Speculation surrounding the timing of Fed and BoE rate hikes as well as the probability of fresh ECB stimulus is the market's more proactive driver - with notable event risk this week promising to further the discussion. On the other hand, the length and depth of complacency has so leveraged the market's dependency on quiet that even the stoic EURUSD is at imminent risk should sentiment ease. We cover the top themes and review the majors in this weekend Strategy Video.
