Trader confidence increases

Market sentiment is improving on hopes that a trade war between the US and the rest of the world can be avoided, steadying stock prices and lessening demand for safe havens such as gold, the Swiss Franc and the Japanese Yen.

Meanwhile, confidence in the Euro has risen ahead of Thursday’s meeting of the European Central Bank despite the inconclusive weekend elections in Italy. Stability in Germany has helped sentiment too, with members of the Social Democratic Party voting to join Chancellor Angela Merkel in government.
