Weekly FX Update – 21 September 2017 (Video)

Central banks are becoming increasingly dominant as we head into the final months of the year and geopolitical risk abates, albeit for now. This week it was the Federal Reserve that stole the limelight, while the ECB and Bank of England, among others also left their mark.

While the week ahead won’t be quite so action packed when it comes to central bank meetings and related events, the German election on Sunday and data releases throughout the week should ensure it’s anything but dull. And don’t forget, North Korean tensions continue to bubble under the surface and could come to the fore at any point.

In this week’s video, Senior Market Analyst Craig Erlam discusses all of this and the other weeks key events. He also gives his analysis on EURUSD (13:53), GBPUSD (15:26), EURGBP (17:30), AUDUSD (18:41), USDCAD (19:23), GBPCAD (21:16), NZDUSD (22:51), USDJPY (24:12), GBPJPY (25:25) and EURJPY (27:05).
