The forthcoming week will open to great expectations amongst market participants. This past week ended off on the strongest rally for US equities of 2015 while the US Dollar has dropped to critical support for its long-term bullish trend. The next phase for each benchmark is critical, and they will certainly source their bearings from fundamental winds. A general rebound in risk-directed assets and slide from the Greenback counters well-established trends which speaks to the pent up potential in this correction as well as the level of conviction necessary to truly establish these moves. Top event risk in the week ahead includes discussions of global growth at the G-20 gathering, China's health amid the 5th Plenum, Fed timing through speeches and CPI, and the full swing into the United States' 3Q earnings season. How are these fundamental scenarios positioned for the coming week and where are the trade opportunities lurking? We discuss this in this weekend Trading Video.
