Asia AM Digest: British Pound Soars on Brexit Progress Hopes

Asia AM Digest: British Pound Soars on Brexit Progress Hopes

The British Pound traded broadly higher amid reports that UK and EU negotiators have struck a deal on the amount that the former country will pay to meet its obligations to the regional block before leaving it. The US Dollar likewise advanced as the Senate tax cut proposal advanced out of committee and toward a floor a vote, bringing the prospect of inflation-boosting fiscal stimulus one step closer to realization.

Hopes that a tax cut will boost corporate earnings appeared to bolster overall risk appetite. The benchmark S&P 500 stock index soared and sentiment-linked currencies including the Australian and New Zealand Dollars gained ground against most of their top counterparts (save for Sterling and the greenback). On the other side of the spectrum, the anti-risk Japanese Yen declined. The Euro lost ground as the OECD predicted that the ECB will not raise the baseline interest rate until 2020.

IG Client Sentiment Index Chart of the Day: Gold

Asia AM Digest: British Pound Soars on Brexit Progress Hopes

CLICK HERE to learn more about the IG Client Sentiment Index

Retail trader data shows 71.5% of traders are net-long gold, with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.5 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.6% higher than yesterday and 4.1% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.6% higher than yesterday and 3.6% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests gold prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current gold price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
