Talking Points:

• Volatility readings are retreating rapidly, dimming the hope for a revival market activity

• The drop in 'fear' has likely bought EURUSD and the Euro some time from a deteriorating backdrop

• Monetary policy will play a greater role from stimulus (Euro) to rate hikes (USD, GBP) ahead

The Eurozone's recovery is sputtering, but EURUSD traders didn't seem to concerned. A prominent range for this benchmark pair stands despite the implications that an economic stall carry for the rapid speculative buildup for the region. This is less likely a fundamental-blindness of the Euro's bearish scenarios and more likely a side effect of the general state of volatility. The slow trend seeing a rebound in activity/fear levels has been put at risk with a rapid retreat in volatility readings for equities, commodities, yields and FX. Yet, the lowest level of non-holiday trading volume in a decade from the S&P 500 reminds us how quickly conditions can change again. We look at the majors and their fundamental guides in today's Trading Video.
