The rebound in risk appetite viewed this past week in equity indexes lacked for volume and fundamental conviction. The distortion in liquidity no doubt contributed to this correction, so what does that mean when the pool fills out this week? Underlying sentiment currents remain a top-of-the-mind concern, but event risk may prove rate forecasts the more proactive catalyst. EURUSD represents one of the most provacative policy discussions - but data will be light. Meanwhile, BoE, RBA and RBNZ rate forecasts will be well-facilitated.
