The market will undergo a lot of ups and downs as the debt payment is not due until the 30th June – producing a scenario of “on again, off again”.

Another catalyst for the market volatility is the investors and traders mindset – where they see “good news is bad news” -- thinking strong growth is going to lead to a stronger reaction from the Fed and therefore produce higher interest rates.
