A return of liquidity this week finds traders are on their toes directly out of the gate. Through a dense docket Monday, top billing was the IMF's acceptance of the Chinese Yuan into the SDR basket.

For those that pass this change over because it lacks the satisfying rush of volatility, considerable opportunities and risks may be overlooked.

Really, this is just the start of the market picking up pace as the week wears on.
