Asset prices have stabilized Tuesday after the plunge in stocks that raised fears of a new bear market. While they may have further to fall, the latest price action suggests that so far this looks more like a healthy correction than the start of a slump.

In Europe, stock markets are more stable and futures prices suggest relatively small losses when Wall Street reopens. US 10-year Treasury note yields are below Monday’s four-year highs and there has been little sign of panic buying of the traditional safe havens such as gold, the Swiss Franc and the Japanese Yen.

Crash or Correction? Today's Moves Suggest Selloff May Have Gone Too Far

Chart by IG

IG Client Sentiment data are currently sending out bear signals for the US Dollar against the Euro, the British Pound and the Japanese Yen, although not gold, and a bullish signal for Wall Street. However, CNN’s Fear & Greed Index has moved from “Greed”, suggesting investors are putting more money into the markets to “Extreme Fear”, suggesting they are reducing their exposure.
