The Week Ahead – Rising Volatility? by RiosQuant founder Joe Rios

The Trading Room

The Nasdaq led the stock indices higher, rising to a new 13-year high, helped by Apple due to indications of strong iPad sales this holiday weekend. US Treasuries continued to consolidate while risk currencies traded mixed within the Forex market. The British Pound and Euro led higher while the Aussie and Canadian dollar continued to slide lower. In the Commodity market Natural Gas continued to climb four consecutive weeks gaining 13.1% followed by Soy 6.3%. Silver was the laggard at month end dropping -11.0% followed by Gold -7% and Crude Oil -5.5%.
As US markets hit new all-time highs, and many other global indices approach their own multi-year or historical highs, in the week ahead traders should be focusing on stocks and risk currencies, particularly the European bourses and the Euro which have managed to shrug off disappointing data. I am expecting volatility to pick up as this week’s economic data calendar is significantly busier especially towards the end of the week.
