Strategy Video:  Should We Prepare for Full Risk Fallout after Equities Slip?

Strategy Video: Should We Prepare for Full Risk Fallout after Equities Slip?

John Kicklighter,

Talking Points:

• A meaningful, market-wide deleverage in risk trends is long overdue, but that doesn't make it imminent

• Tuesday, global equities suffered a stumble led by a sharp 4.1 percent drop from the Shanghai Composite

• Yet, to gain serious traction against such long-term speculative comfort; the fear must reach deeper

This past session was marked by a global sell off in equities, and the natural inclination by traders is to look for evidence of a lasting reversal. After more than six years of speculative buildup, the investing ranks are either wary of a turn or awaiting the exceptional opportunity that it will present. Whether capricious or chomping at the bit, the market is highly sensitive to such uniformity against such a high profile trend. Yet, this move is well established in speculative appetite, external reinforcement and ultimately a sense of complacency. When it does permanently falter, the reach will extend much further and the panic will be palpable. In today's Strategy Video, we review the benchmarks for sentiment and track the fundamental themes that may ultimately contribute to its undoing.
