Trading Video: S&P 500, Yen Crosses and EURUSD Ideal Fear Trades

Trading Video: S&P 500, Yen Crosses and EURUSD Ideal Fear Trades

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The S&P 500 and Dow - bulls' stalwarts - broke defining trendlines to close the week

• Evidence that a systemic change in sentiment is taking place is materializing far and wide

• Equities, Yen crosses, the Euro and the Dollar are appealing trade opportunity for different reasons

Has the market finally turned? In an unusual week-ending move, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average broke trends that have come to symbolize the bullish ranks' enduring optimism...or their effective complacency. Alone, this would signal a threatening correction to one asset type in one region. However, US equities were merely the hold out to a deteriorating backdrop of sentiment measured in many other market arenas (volatility, FX, high-yield, etc). Full scale risk aversion would catalyze a situation made unstable by leverage, participation and the level of exposure; but can we call this the turn? What setups are better suited to a waver and which to full-scale risk aversion? We discuss this in the weekend Trading Video.
