Forex: Dollar, Yen Tumble and S&P 500 Rally Speak to Clear Risk Drive

Forex: Dollar, Yen Tumble and S&P 500 Rally Speak to Clear Risk Drive

This would be a convincing potential trend development if there was a convincing driver for the improved sentiment. Yet, there wasn't. With the markets still dealing with unusual trading conditions (thinning speculative liquidity, big-ticket threats and a seasonality expectation), it is critical to remain vigilant and flexible. We discuss the risks and opportunities in today's video.
