Market activity continued to dissipate this past week. Complacency and self-assurance have long ago reached extreme levels, but the market has put off rebalancing until something has forced the issue. Perhaps we will find that impetus this week. With the din of doubt amongst bulls growing, we head into a week laden with event risk that will weigh in on growth, monetary policy and financial soundness. Growth releases from the US, UK and Spain; rate decisions for the FOMC and BoJ; and a variety of events with a storied background in volatiltiy are due. What should we look to first?
