With major technical levels at hand for the majors - some still holding, some broken - speculators await the next burst of volatility. For the ever-elusive risk theme, we are seeing another early swell in fear. With the S&P 500 pulling back to channel support, the emerging market currencies favoring safe havens and yen crosses easing back; there is a uniform sentiment move.
