The balance of risk appetite and volatility fears will always be the dominant theme when active. Yet, for this week - just as last - there is something more active to work with: monetary policy and rate expectations. While the Fed's Taper timeframe is still an ongoing debate, the ECB's sharp dovish turn and the BoE's ongoing efforts to curb hike expectations will prove active drivers t his week.
