The market rallied today but the gain is not as big as that of Wall Street because investors are worried that a weaker dollar to the yen is going to cut back on Japanese exporters' profits.
Just like investors unwind their positions in the dollar and commodities, they avoid all risky assets including stocks.
There doesn't seem any fundamental reason behind the move this morning. It can happen in markets where banks are taking on less risk than in the past, in general, we expect the euro to fall but only in a slow manner. We will see some gains for the dollar as the Fed raises rates, but it will not happen in a big, front-loaded way as we have seen in previous cycles, the moves will be slower.
