A surge in risk trends and the dollar indicated the market's optimism that the United States is closing in on a debt ceiling resolution. US equities posted their biggest rally since the surge that opened 2013, and the dollar managed its first two-day rally in five weeks as headlines suggested House Republicans and the US President were warming to a short-term extension of the impending debt deadline. Not yet approved and a temporary solution, it seems the market is ready to rally. However, traders need to assess just how big any swell in sentiment will be in a situation that merely 'averts disaster'. We discuss this fundamental development along with key trade updates (USDJPY, CHFJPY, AUDJPY, GBPUSD, GBPAUD and others) in today's video.
