In a world of ?beggar thy neighbour?, the much-hyped unofficial race to debase is pushing not just currencies about, but is having a firm impact on other asset classes as well, with many global indices trading as a derivate of the forex market. In this presentation Chris Weston will examine how policy both on a fiscal, and subsequently a monetary, level is pushing flows around the forex markets, culminating in a weaker currency. Find out who has the most aggressive policy, how the market is currently set-up and how positioning may impact price action over the short to medium term. Ultimately, while longer-term forecasting is extremely unreliable, learn Chris?s thoughts on who could come out trumps in the so-called currency war.
