Talking heads – A new foreign exchange regime?

Foreign exchange (FX) markets can be viewed as a derivative asset in that they tend to be driven by volatility in other asset markets. Since 2015, most of the leading currencies have traded in relatively confined ranges. With volatility rising in equity, bond and commodity markets, there are good reasons to expect a new regime in currency markets.  

Listen to this Talking heads podcast with head of foreign exchange John Bradley and chief market strategist Daniel Morris as they discuss what a new regime in foreign exchange markets could mean for different categories of currencies.

Formerly known as ‘Market weekly’, Talking heads brings investors the in-depth insights on topics that really matter to them, analysis of the world and markets through the lens of sustainability and more great conversations with investment experts.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). 

Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
