The quarter rollover was not as drama-laden as feared. However, there is little time to catch our breath. A concerted shift in underlying market conditions, growing threats to correct perceived financial system imbalances and high-level event risk threaten to spur even more activity from the markets.

Burgeoning thematic concerns are also starting to rise with Emerging Markets the source of geopolitical tension and a center for intervention threats.

EURUSD in particular will be at risk with the ECB and NFPs within reach. We discuss all of this in today's Trading Video.
