Forex News Trading Strategy For The Week

Jarratt Davis

Special Consultant to the FPA
ECB Rate Statement and press conference are the highlights of Forex news trading events taking place this week. We do not expect ECB to do anything BUT if they decide to add more QE or express their concern about the current situation then this could be the time to do it. We also have a Rate Statement from Canada and again expect no change but there is talk of them cutting again at some point in the future so this week we are looking for their views and any change in tone.

All the high-impact events are as follow:
