What constitutes 'extreme' to a trader? Is it a 500 pip move or perhaps an 89-consecutive week trend? Whether we are taking about price, activity level or any other aspect of the markets, labeling something extreme insinuates that there is an expectation that it will change direction. However, markets can grow more extreme and sometimes the label is applied to what is simply robust momentum that can carry a trend much further. In today's Strategy Video we discuss the implications and tradability of 'extremes' against financial market volatility, the S&P 500, USDJPY and the US Dollar.
