All markets are linked be they FX or whatever. Fundamentals are the drivers and give markets direction and targets where equilibrium might be re-established while technical analysis tries to forecast the drunken route price will take to get there.

Order of Importance;

1/ FOMC mtg rate decision 8x a year. US interest rate changes are the most forceful market movers.

2/ US Non Farm Payroll, monthly is a big influencer on the FOMC mtg's.

3/ US services PMIs, a leading 'state of the economy' indicator.

4/ US manufacturing PMI's, as above.

5/ US CPI, inflation. Not so important lately as there hasn't been any.

All the other first world economies take their lead off the US economy (US sneezes rest of world catches a cold)
