John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The bouyant growth and rate forecasts that lifted the Dollar and US equities Friday reversed Monday

• Both the Euro and Yen can extend their respective tumbles, but motivation is tougher to fuel

• Ahead, policy speculation will stir volatility for the Yen, Aussie dollar and Pound

The rebound for US equities and further surge from the US Dollar after Friday's NFPs seemed to lose its potency over the weekend. Both moves stalled and began to retrace to start this week, calling attention to two high-profile trends that are increasingly coming under fire for being over-extended. The greenback and S&P 500 being driven by two very different fundamental themes that don't often exist simultaneously for long: expectations of rising yields and appetite for risk predicated on low yields. Meanwhile, the Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound and Australia dollar are all facing important fundamental updates that are slowly turning the tables on market convictions. We look at these trends and their trade potential in today's Trading Video.
