Live FX Market Analysis – 16 October 2017 (Video)

In this webinar session, Senior Market Analyst Craig Erlam discusses the events that he believes could have the greatest impact on FX markets.

Tier one US economic data may be in short supply this week but with earnings season getting in full flow and Donald Trump never too far from the headlines, there should be plenty for traders to get their teeth into.

On the data side, the UK will be under the microscope this week with inflation, labour market and consumer spending figures all being released. WIth the Bank of England contemplating its first post-financial crisis rate hike before the end of the year, Governor Mark Carney’s appearance before the Treasury Select Committee will likely be scrutinized for any policy clues.

Craig discusses all of this and much more and also gives his live analysis on EURUSD (11:05), GBPUSD (13:27), EURGBP (15:10), AUDUSD (17:37), USDCAD (19:26), GBPCAD (20:46), NZDUSD (22:11), USDJPY (24:37), GBPJPY (28:04) and EURJPY (30:22).
