Talking Points:

• Yet, the strong sentiment implied in this equities swell wasn't shared by FX and other markets

• Event risk ahead turns the focus on monetary policy for the Dollar, Euro and Pound Want to develop a more in-depth knowledge on the market and strategies?

Check out the DailyFX Trading Guides we have produced on a range of topics.

Following its worst weekly tumble in over two years, US equities have extended their recovery to a fourth session and the best single-day climb in 12 months. Alongside, a drop in volatility measures, this looks like the makings of a recovery in investor sentiment. That said, there was little of the S&P 500 and Dow exuberance seen in other asset classes. Is the surge in equities a false harbinger or will it just take time for other markets to catch up? FX traders moving forward will have to assess broader sentiment trends against monetary policy forecasts as the economic docket fills out with key event risk. We look at both themes and their market influence in today's Trading Video.
