Forex: S&P 500 and USDollar Turns Despite Fed May Signal True Bias

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The Fed's 'no Taper' vote hasn't spurred the risk appetite and dollar selling we would have expected

• Should deleveraging continue despite the extended support, we are looking at a far larger trend

• Between pairs like AUDUSD, EURUSD, NZDJPY and others, we discuss which best fit different scenarios

The market acclimating to a deferred Taper world; and given the S&P 500 and dollar performances, optimists may be losing their influence regardless of central bank support. Looking at the long-term technical picture for the market's most optimistic benchmarks - US equities - we find tentative technical corrections. Yet, the fundamental implications of such a retreat following such a 'risk supportive' outcome is far more telling. In this weekend video, we discuss the dangerous conditions faced long-only speculators along with the trades that are best positioned to take advantage of 'risk on', 'risk off' and 'risk neutral' conditions.
