John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Speculation of the Fed's Taper has shifted from September, to March 2014 back to December of this year

• Encouraging data and cautiously optimistic Fed rhetoric is keeping rate watchers interested

• It will be difficult to generate a Taper Speculation-led trend with December seasonality setting in

Is the full sense of complacency so common in December enough to over ride a critical turning point in global monetary policy - a key support for general risk trends?
