Mixed Messages From Market Sentiment Indicators as USD Strength Persists
Market sentiment talking points:
- In this webinar I took a look at market sentiment, confidence and positioning, as well as which markets are currently on the move.
For a longer-term outlook take a look at our Q2 forecast for USD.
Traders are currently neither putting more money into the markets nor cashing in, putting the spotlight on those markets that are currently trending such as the US Dollar and oil (up), and the Euro and British Pound (both down).
The week is also a quiet one for confidence indicators, with the only important one the University of Michigan index of US consumer sentiment, due on Friday.
Emphasizing the lack of overall drivers, the Canadian Dollar, which generally moves with the oil price, is currently failing to benefit from the present strength of crude.
