EUR/USD crash explained, FOMC minutes rundown, US jobs and Venezuela with oil – Market Movers #32

EUR/USD had a spectacular crash in the wake of 2015. We explain what’s behind it, what is already priced in and what isn’t. The Fed is seems to be smooth sailing towards hiking, but there are bumps on the road and data dependency: yes the NFP. And, we examine another effect of falling oil: the Caribbean country of Venezuela.

Welcome to a new episode of Market Movers, presented by Lior Cohen of Trading NRG and Yohay Elam of Forex Crunch.You are welcome to listen, subscribe and provide feedback.

  1.  Oil and Venezuela: The country that is responsible for a significant chunk of oil production is not exactly prepared this time. Can the regime collapse? How will it impact other markets?
  2. EUR/USD – the crash: QE is coming, but will it be a “sell the fact”? It depends, and we explain. Greece is another important theme and we also brush through the tragic terror attack in Paris and its impact on the single currency.
  3. FOMC minutes rundown: The Fed managed not to rock the boat, but still included a clear message. We explain how Yellen supports the greenback.
  4. US Labor: The headline NFP is the immediate market mover. We talk about this and also look beyond to the elusive wage hikes.
