Risk on, Risk Off: Is the Rally Over?


Trade the market you're given, not the one you want.

Todd recently filmed a segment with Jeff Macke on Yahoo's Breakout, discussing the "risk on, risk off" trade. As we always say on Minyanville, the reaction to the news matters more than the news itself. Todd says that it spoke volumes when the market couldn't be taken down in the midst of Japan's nuclear scare, and also when the market couldn't rally after Osama bin Laden's death.

In the credit markets, Todd says, "Credit markets trade great," giving another reason to be bullish. They aren't a "panacea in terms of predictive powers"; debt does tend to lead stocks, for good or bad.
