Shant

Shant primarily covers the G10 FX majors and analysis on the rates and currency markets, based on 20 years of experience, primarily in spot FX and options, including as an inter-bank trader at a leading Scandinavian retail name.

Giving a broad and balanced view on determining underlying sentiment, adaptability is key in the current climate which is ever more dynamic. Emerging market currencies are also coming to the fore and are having a greater influence on the leading currencies, which is within Shant's analytical remit.

He focuses on the fundamental factors influencing trade, but incorporates technical and historical factors in forecasting directional views.
