The Dollar suffered its biggest drop in a month this past session. Yet, we need to put this move into perspective. The drop is dwarfed by an eight, straight month rally and occured after touching an 11-year high. This is a modest pullback in the span of a larger bull trend - a trend that growing more mature and is looking ahead to a critical event risk next week (the FOMC decision) to confirm traders' convictions. Moderation in this context is neither unexpected nor is it fatal to the bigger trend. The S&P 500's rebound from its recent tumble, however, is more influential. While there has been a broad move towards risk aversion, it is still a fledgling move that has yet to make the transition from short-term speculative swings to more systemic deleveraging. We look the dominant themes behind current market moves in today's Trading Video.
