    Five Things You Need to Know to Start Your Day

    U.S. stocks eked out modest gains Wednesday, but the real news may be the lack of price swings across developed-market assets recently. Front-month futures tied to the CBOE Volatility Index closed Tuesday at the lowest since before the record explosion in U.S. equity price swings back in February. Treasury-market implied volatility is moving back toward record lows, a testament to stable expectations about the near-term outlook for the Federal Reserve. Meanwhile, a Deutsche Bank index of estimated developed-world currency swings sits nearly one standard deviation below its 12-month average. “Markets appear rather complacent in the face of the trade tensions, so caution is warranted on directional trades at this point,” Kit Juckes, a Societe Generale strategist, wrote in a note.

    A 15% weekly fall in Wall Street's 'fear index' suggests trade-war jitters are fading

    Wall Street's so-called fear index has been receding in the past week, even as tensions around trade between the U.S. and its counterparts across the globe have been escalating. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) which reflects bearish and bullish bets on the S&P 500 index (SPX) on Friday was down by almost 15% thus far this week and is hovering around 13.73, well below its historical average between 19 and 20 and implying that worries about trade clashes eventually doing harm to markets and the global economy are ebbing. A weekly slump for the VIX would also represent its first such slide after to straight weeks of gains of at least 14%.
