Talking Points:

• Risk-sensitive benchmarks tumbled to open the week leading traders to fear of a bigger sentiment shift

• The S&P 500 collapsed 2.3% and GBPJPY led yen crosses with a 1.8% drop - the biggest dives in 7 months

• Another round of critical support levels stand just below the week's lows

What kind of Trading best suits you? Technical or Fundamental? Short-term or Long-term? Take our Trader Survey and find out.

The trading week opened to heavy selling in equities, high yield and yen crosses. A move of this breadth and severity gives the impression that a bigger risk aversion event may be at hand. And yet, sharp declines over the past few years have almost exclusively represented points of exhaustion to short-lived corrections. So are we looking at another pullback that bulls will soon draw opportunistic bulls back in on the bid or is the scope of this sentiment-related move indicative of a more permanent reversal in confidence and a years-long bull wave? We look at the fundamental and technical developments behind risk trends in today's Trading Video.
