The financial markets seem tranquil in the face of a storm of troubling fundamental developments. Complacency does not stretch forever however, especially as the threats grow increasingly acute and near. The list of threats to our seemingly stable system are the kinds that would look like 'obvious' triggers for catastrophe in a post mortem of a market collapse or general financial crisis. The implications of the Fed possibly raising rates in September to cut into already razor thin returns, a Greek exit sparked by a banking system liquidity crunch, or an elemental speculative slump guided by excess in regions like China all carry the right level of influence. Yet, despite all three of this threats swelling these past 48 hours, there are no casualties yet...but that may be a matter of time rather than circumstance. We take a look at the market with a particular view of Dollar, Euro and risk in today's Trading Video.
