Strategy Video: Volatility and Rate Forecasts Shifting After FOMC, GDP

Talking Points:

• US 2Q GDP beat expectations with a 4.0 percent clip of growth that seemed to support USD more than SPX

• While the FOMC Tapered and its statement was slowly pushing hawkishness, its impact was muted

• Looking at the bigger picture, volatility and interest rate measures are starting to trend higher

Most traders were caught up in the short-term market responses from today's US 2Q GDP reading and the FOMC rate decision. Yet, there may be something more substantial brewing in the deeper fundamental currents. While there were a number of sharp moves in the financial markets - particularly from the US Dollar - there are more substantial and lasting developments behind volatility readings (risk) and yields (interest rate expectations). If these trends continue, a more systemic change in market conditions is afoot. We focus on these underlying trends in today's Strategy Video.
