This has curbed the development of meaningful trends and thereby required more active trading with more proximate stops and targets. However, there were early signs of a genuine risk aversion trend this past session as the Dollar Index finally cleared consistent resistance for the past month and the S&P 500 finally broke the floor of its rising trend. That said, a break and follow through are two very different levels of conviction. If we are to develop a clear trend, a strong fundamental push is needed to align investors outlook. We head into our next wave of major event risk to see if that trend can take root before the weekend.
