We have started off this trading week with another strong bout of volatility. Global equities are now freely responding to the swoons in speculative appetite as readily as emerging markets, high yield fixed income and carry trade have over the past months. An intensified sensitivity to the ebb and flow of sentiment makes the financial system more exposed to fundamental shifts in capital. Meanwhile, despite the rising tide of volatility, the Fed seems undeterred in its efforts to prepare the market for an inevitable normalization of monetary policy. While Chicago Fed President Charles Evans stated the case for further delay, San Francisco President Williams and FOMC board member Dudley added their voices to a hawkish crowd and even a warning of maintaining excessive accommodation. This fundamental themes will extend going forward, will the underlying market moves? We discuss that in today's Trading Video.
