The 'Taper' headlines seem to have abated recently, but this important fundamental theme will return to the forefront on key event risk (NFPs, policy speeches) just when technicals are threatening breakouts. Alone this eventuality has direct implications for the dollar, but its true influence comes through its potential impact on general risk trends.
