Trading Video: SPX Extends Run as Dollar Rebounds, RBA Key Event Risk

Trading Video: SPX Extends Run as Dollar Rebounds, RBA Key Event Risk

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Last week's impressive risk appetite run picked up where it left off as Equities and EM posted rallied

• An anchored Fed forecast may have sparked speculative appetite, but it hasn't overturned Dollar strength

• Top theme event risk ahead is 'global headwinds' while the more concentrated event will be the RBA decision

The risk appetite rebound from this past week carried through to Monday. Equities, emerging markets and high yield surged higher to start the week. A delayed Fed hike contributed to optimism through the end of the past week, but that speculative leverage hasn't carried through as a robust driver into this new week. The weak showing on labor statistics last Friday is a fundamental contrast to growth, and this past session's ISM service sector report offers a counterbalance to the stimulus-for-longer outlook. Given service sector jobs account for a majority of positions in the world's largest economy, the strong showing for the PMI's employment component curbs belief that the Fed can hold forever - much less that it will return to QE. The Dollar's rebound is testament to the contrast for rate expectations as a speculative drive. With doubt in mind as to the bias of risk trends, we head into a weak where high profile themes - global 'headwinds', emerging market volatility, China - come back into focus. For more concentrated risk, the RBA rate decision is a key event that can trigger short-term volatility fears. We look at theme and catalyst in today's Trading Video.
