As every Wednesday, Joseph Trevisani will present an edition of his series of interviews called “Market Directions” with the most experienced analysts, educators, technicians and traders of the currency market.
Every first Friday of the month, the US Non-Farm Payrolls is scheduled to release the most important data about the currencies moves where markets are more volatile than any other news event. The US Jobs Report outlines the health of the US economy and central banks, which in consequence it means everyone on the planet is impacted by NFP.
And once again, on Friday the date will arrive to our calendars.
Our Chief Analyst Valeria Bednarik has been interviewed by Finance Feeds in a series about Women in the finance world.
Valeria is the only trader and analyst of all the interviewed women. She explains how she got into the industry (it all started 15 years ago!), what challenges she faced, a couple of anecdotes that helped her suceed and her view about the role of women with the financial services.
