Funnily enough when I opened that video, it started at 5 mins something... Evidently I had already come across it couldn't quite follow or just couldn't engage with it. The video that FXX provided here has actually been quite helpful. It gives me a clearer understanding of the cogs in the machine and the overall result of human behaviour/policy. So when I watch that again, i'll watch that Kicklighter video again. I was quite perplexed at why the USD reacted the way it did to what I thought was going to provoke a bullish outcome...im sure the video will make more sense to me soon
Even if you're a short-term trader these sorts of fundamentals are dangerous to ignore. That said, if central bank activities, news info, national GDP etc. etc. don't generate some movement in the range of USD charts or EUR charts or GBP charts etc., then how useful are they for trading? After all, we're not any of us looking for a site somewhere on the planet to locate a new TV factory or ship-yard.
