John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• We look at the scale for market fear from random volatility events to liquidity crunches

• The FOMC rate decision on Wednesday sets a benchmark for timing possible catalyst for risk

The Emerging Market-induced risk aversion that threw the broader financial markets into turmoil last week seems to have eased Monday. That doesn't mean it is time for traders to relax - much less flood back into more exposed 'risk' trades - though. Fear is a volatile and contagious emotion which is rarely born from rational origins. An extreme shift in speculative bearings can arise from fast-moving markets themselves. In today's Strategy Video, we discuss the ebb and flow of risk trends, the scale of risk aversion and possible catalysts on the docket.
