Trading Video: Is 2015 Opening to a Definitive Change in Risk Trends?

Trading Video: Is 2015 Opening to a Definitive Change in Risk Trends?

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Monday opened to the first fully-liquidity trading day of the New Year

• With the market's ceremonial return, we found a broad collapse in global equities and volatility swell

• Whether sentiment finally rolls over permanently or it is a short-term shudder, there is opportunity

The return of liquidity hasn't brought with it a revived optimism. Risk aversion intensified across for Yen crosses, global equities and other assets considered among the 'riskier' sort. Is this what is to be expected from 2015? Can we make a call on such an important and systemic market shift on the first full day of liquidity in the New Year? Rising volatility is certainly not new - we have seen activity levels (some would say 'fear') trend higher over the past six months and hold out surprisingly well through the holiday period. Yet, the breadth and focus of the swell in activity on risk aversion is unexpected. If the fuse is already lit, the trade potential is enormous. If not, it may give an opportunity on trades that look like they have already launched. We look at the market's first moves of the New Year in today's Trading Video.
