Trading Video: Another Leg Down in Risk Drives Dow Lower but Not Yen Crosses

Talking Points:

• Market-wide risk trends are showing unusual contrasts in different asset classes and volatility readings

• The normally stubborn equities market continues to retreat while sensitive Yen crosses are holding out

• Rate expectations are another key theme as the Dollar shows preference for some developments vs others

Market conditions change, and our strategy should reflect those changes. We have coded the DailyFX-Plus strategies for Breakout, Range and Momentum to adapt to these market shifts.

Global equities have traditionally been the last 'risk' sensitive assets to cave to slumps in sentiment. Currently, they are leading other markets - like the Yen crosses. Is this divergence a sign of another imbalance of speculative commitment that ends just as the S&P 500 and Dow come to heavy support? Or perhaps this is a result of a more systemic shift that finds late adopters in the likes of the FX's risk ranks. What should we look for to confirm a clear move on sentiment, and what pairs and markets are best positioned for the different outcomes? We weigh in on this ever-important theme in today's Trading Video.
