Talking Points:

• Risk aversion is the most ominous threat to FX and capital markets but it is difficult to jump start

• A EURJPY or S&P 500 collapse are just two of the many trade options for the optimal scenario

• Yet, in the current 'grey area' on sentiment trends, NZDJPY and US oil are more proactive

It is tempting to daydream about - and position for - a full-scale risk aversion move; but it is best to wait until such a kinetic theme is realized before trading it. That doesn't mean, however, that there aren't trade setups in this sentiment purgatory. In today's video, we discuss productive developments in the non-risk bound (GBPUSD), the eager fear trades (yen crosses) and those that straddle the line (NZDJPY and the yen crosses).
