Forex: Both S&P 500 and USDollar at Major Support, Which Breaks?

Talking Points:

• The S&P 500 has retreated to its 2013's channel support while the USDollar struggles at its own floor

• A heavy risk move can generate strong trade options, but even a steady profile can provide setups

• September NFPs have been delayed, lowering the risk threat assessment, but the BoJ can stir the Yen

A favorite benchmark for risk appetite (the S&P 500) and risk aversion (the US dollar) are both sitting at serious support. Regardless of its lean, a meaningful shift in market sentiment can send markets reeling with a number of trading opportunities with each scenario. Yet, a resolution to this speculative standoff may be more difficult to resolve before the end of the week now that the NFPs has been delayed. In today's video, we discuss risk trends with a focus on the dollar and yen crosses, more elemental fundamental (yield forecasts) for different pairs, and much more.
