Forex: Post-FOMC Dollar and S&P 500 Runs Cool Quickly, Risk Reversal

Forex: Post-FOMC Dollar and S&P 500 Runs Cool Quickly, Risk Reversal

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The 'surprise' element of No Taper seems to have passed quickly

• Risk positioning is still acutely sensitive to the premium vs yield imbalance

• A move to deleverage is still a tremendous risk - and not even more an afront to monetary policy

Rather than find a hearty US equity and 'risk on' rally in the markets the day after the Fed shocked the majority of traders by holding off the Taper, we have found hesitation. The S&P 500 put in for a mild correction while the USDollar posted a sizable rebound in a price development historically associated to reversals. While there is still Taper premium that can be worked off for the market, playing down a moderation in stimulus is also a vote on risk trends. With the knowledge that support will inevitably be moderated and backdrop investment conditions have not materially improved; we may be seeing the true salt of sentiment trends. In today's video, we discuss how reversals are a material threat - though we should keep the powder dry until that fear erupts.
