Markets  are different during the holiday season that just began. How should you react? We begin with this topic and then talk about things that do move markets: the US data and especially GDP that look more complicated than earlier,  the UK elections that already have an impact on the BOE and the pound and China’s rate cut and its meaning for related currencies.

Welcome to a new episode of  Market Movers, presented by Lior Cohen of Trading NRG and Yohay Elam of Forex Crunch.You are welcome to listen, subscribe and  provide feedback.

The topics:

  1. How to trade during the holidays: On one hand, markets might become boring, but some speculators trigger wild action in markets.  We provide some recent holiday data and practical tips for trading (or not trading) around this special time of year.
  2. UK in the balance:  We had some  contradicting figures and some contradicting messages from the UK, and  perhaps too much of a sell-off. What’s next for the pound? The electoral calendar begins playing a role in the BOE’s decisions.
  3. Run down of US data: Recent  figures coming out of the United States have been somewhat underwhelming, with the strong ones containing caveats. What does it mean for the US dollar?
  4. China cut: Is the country  re-balancing or just slowing down and is in a delicate situation? We dive into the various forces moving the world’s no. 2 economy
