Currency Strategist

A financial professional who evaluates economic trends and geopolitical moves to forecast price moves in the foreign exchange market. A currency strategist is often employed by a forex brokerage firm to perform research and analysis, and to form opinions regarding current and future currency price moves.

Currency strategists often use a combination of technical and fundamental analysis to make forecasts. A currency strategist usually has a degree in economics, international finance or international politics, and has a deep understanding of the international monetary system.

Also known as a currency researcher or a forex market analyst.

A currency strategist performs research to make forecasts about currency movements by identifying and monitoring the driving factors of the currency markets. Occasionally, these strategists will make appearances on financial news networks to give commentary on currency issues. Opinions produced by respected currency strategists are regularly used by individual and institutional traders to assist with trading decisions.
