USD: risk-taking looking more likely to resume - Nomura

eFXdata reports that Nomura Research notes that speculators look ready to take risks again.

"As the curtain falls on this month’s “sell in May” impetus, we are seeing early signs of a resumption of risk-taking. It has been a bumpy May, with investors at times taking a disliking to such developments as the spike in inflation signals, the market turbulence in Taiwan, and the cryptocurrency sell-off. However, the S&P seems to have quickly recovered from what turned out to be a shallow dip. To all appearances, there is still quite a bit of dip-buying demand among investors looking ahead to an expected resumption of economic activity," Nomura adds.
