The Future of Forex

Forex traders need to be on their toes and look for the next opportunity. Since the Fed intervention in mid-March, the dollar has been on a downward slide. Fears of US-China tension hasn’t helped its safe haven status. Will we return to an era of dollar weakness that followed the 2008 financial crash? In Japan, the Yen has been in the 104-110 range for months – what will it take to break out of this range?

Against this backdrop, emerging market currencies have been on a tear, with some bouncing back to pre-crisis levels. Are these realistic given the state of the real economies? What is the long-term impact on currencies of central banks and governments jumping in with stimulus and debt market support? We gather experts to answer these questions and more.
