Today, we look at the impact across markets after Friday saw the US warning of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine, an intention Russia denies. German Chancellor Scholz is headed for Kyiv today and to Moscow tomorrow for talks. The headline risk has been ratcheted sharply higher with the latest escalation in tensions, and market participants will need to tread carefully. We also look at Russia's global weight in key commodities and look at the event risk calendars for the week ahead, as traders will also struggle to disentangle geopolitical tensions with concern on how rapidly policymakers intend to tighten financial conditions. Today's pod features  Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
