Key Quotes:



"These fears were soon calmed. That said, risk appetite has been at elevated levels for some months and this has resulted in talk that markets are behaving in a euphoric manner".



"In view of the discussion as to whether the current level of asset prices can be justified, it is hardly surprising that a sniff of bad news could create a sharp round of profit-taking".



"Looking ahead, there are likely to be other market upsets. However, as long as the central banks continue to push cheap money, investors are likely to remain well insulated".



"In this environment the USD is likely to remain relatively soft".
