Van-Petersen also looks at the significant event risks toward the end of 2016 with the US presidential election on November 8, the Italian referendum on December 4 and a potential rate hike by the US Federal Reserve in November or December.
We could be entering the longest regime of USD weakness/liquidation this year, he explains, and expects break outs from range-trading environments across currencies, commodities and equities.
