Whether we are talking about the S&P 500's advance to record highs, yen crosses extraordinarily consistent rally or the calm for EURUSD; there is a sense of suspense and suspicion lurking just beneath the surface. Resolving the disparity in prevailing market performance and their general lack of fundamental substance might seem inevitable with the upcoming wave of event risk risk; but on many accounts, it is expected to fall short or miss the mark on the underlying theme. Will the ECB rate decision jump start an eventual EURUSD breakout? Could Friday NFPs sour risk trends and turn the yen crosses off record-breaking bull runs? Is there enough fundamental power to turn a GBPUSD breakout into a trend? We discuss this technical and fundamental imbalance in today's Trading Video.
