Forex Trading Opportunities for the Week Ahead 20 May 18

FXR Team

Note that this is my current view, but if market conditions change my view can change too. Generally I will trade in alignment with what I have noted here, though I will wait for a set-up before I enter. I base my view on technical and fundamental information. This is my beliefs and you are welcome to have opposite ones. Having a plan is more important than the actual direction for me. 

Today’s report is abbreviated as I’m on holiday. Additionally, there will be no video this week. Normal service will resume next week.
