Despite the volatile FX action with the USD breaking out to fresh record highs and US inflation rising to a whopping 9.1%, prompting markets to shift towards a 100bps hike. However, as Fed hawks maintain the view that 75bps is the base case, equity markets closed out last week on a firmer note, halving their weekly losses. This is quite noteworthy that equities have taken the recent news in its stride. That said, as I have stated previously, the bias remains to fade bear market rallies. This week sees a slew of major risk events from Europe, notably the Nord Stream decision, as well as the ECB meeting, where the focus is firmly fixed on the Anti-fragmentation tool. S&P 500 topside resistance is situated at 3945-50 and 4015 ahead.
