With the S&P 500 pushing record highs and EURUSD driven to the bounds of its decade-long range, big market moves are in store. However, where these major market developments may be inevitable, their timing can be stretched due to 'market conditions'. The impending liquidity drain with the year-end holidays will diminish the market's capacity to jump start major moves - whether breakout, reversal or trend development - and warp the signals that we usually look for in traditional technical and fundamental cues.
