Indicators to drive market sentiment

A host of market confidence indicators to be released this week will likely determine whether trader sentiment improves or worsens over the next few days. After a broadly positive set of indicators for the Euro-Zone released earlier today, the US and the UK will be in focus as both consumer and business confidence figures are released.

In the meantime, Wall Street stocks are continuing to rally, suggesting sentiment remains positive, but there has been little sign of selling of safe-haven assets such as gold and US Treasuries.
