Day 1 - Tuesday 12th September 2017

3:50 PM In Conversation: How should and are Central Banks intervening in the FX markets, and how is their influence growing?

  • BIS central banks have signaled their commitment by announcing that they will follow the Global Code of Conduct, and that they expect that their counterparties will do so too – what will be the consequences for those who don’t?

  • Examining the growing influence of central banks – are they playing a bigger role in the FX market and in financial markets generally, and is this going to continue to increase and at the same speed?

  • How effective have central banking policies been - have they had the desired impact to improve the economy?

  • With many Central Banks reversing recent policies, is there a limit to how far monetary policy can go?

  • Have central banks considered using algos to intervene?
