Forex Signals Brief for May 23: Markets Are Ready for the FOMC Minutes

Posted Wednesday, May 23, 2018 by

Despite what has been relatively subdued forex markets, our signals have been extremely busy. The FX Leaders Team were very active yesterday and there were a number of signals in play throughout the session.

The team finished the day five and five in which we traded a diverse range of pairs, indexes and commodities. In what was a relatively choppy day it was probably the indexes that showed the most profit. We found wins multiple times in the S&P 500 and the German DAX.

If you were hoping for a breather then it’s only bad news, because Wednesday is when we get started with the big economic data releases for the week. The headline act is, of course, the FOMC Minutes, which will have the majors very much in focus.
