This past week was one of trends. The S&P 500's sharp rebound towards record highs and the USDollar's 10-day straight collapse speak to 'risk appetite'. And yet, the fundamental drive and participation levels behind these moves generate more doubt than conviction. Are these thematic benchmarks due to reverse or has this been a point of acceleration for renewed trend?
