To say there is a lot of geopolitical risk in the market right now would be an understatement. There's a palpable sense of populism rising — whether that's at the heart of the U.S. / China trade wars, Brexit negotiations or a whole host of other issues — that is threatening to shake up the economic status quo. What is that going to do to global markets? And how can traders take advantage of the rising opportunity?
Those are the questions that we tackle in the latest interview with DailyFX's chief currency strategist, John Kicklighter. John breaks down the recent moves in global macro markets, how that may impact forex trading and lessons that he's learned from his 20 years of trading experience.
