Live FX Market Analysis – 30 October 2017 (Video)

In this week’s webinar, Senior Market Analyst previews what promises to be a very busy and important week for the markets.

Central banks will primarily be in focus as US President Donald Trump prepares to announce who will succeed Janet Yellen as Fed Chair, while the BoE meets to discuss whether it will raise interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis.

On top of this we have a packed data schedule which started today with US inflation data and ends with the US jobs report on Friday, both of which will pique the interest of Fed watchers everywhere.

Corporate earnings season continues with 139 companies from the S&P 500 due to report on the third quarter, while the political situation in Catalonia and the investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 US election will remain a key focal point.

Craig discusses all of this and much more and also gives his live analysis on EURUSD (12:10), GBPUSD (16:08), EURGBP (18:45), AUDUSD (20:50), USDCAD (23:10), GBPCAD (25:05), NZDUSD (26:12), USDJPY (30:26), GBPJPY (32:00) and EURJPY (32:43).
