Both the Dollar and S&P 500 marked impressive performances over the past trading session, and the progress suggests existing trends may soon revive larger trends. With the USDollar pushing to a four-month high and US equities nudging record highs, we are presented with a backdrop that materially disarms the high-potential - but low probability - in a market-wide deleverage in risk.

We look at risk trends and the dollar pairs in today's Forex Trading Video.
