Market Sentiment Improves But Still Held Back By Concerns About Trade

Market Sentiment Improves But Still Held Back By Concerns About Trade

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Sentiment talking points:

- Sentiment in the financial markets is better than it has been for a while.

- However, worries about global trade in general and US/China trade in particular is preventing a full recovery.

- In this webinar, I discussed these issues and market confidence more generally

And for a longer-term outlook take a look at our Q2 forecast for USD.

Market confidence

Sentiment in the financial markets is currently better than it has been for a while but so far money is neither flooding into them nor being withdrawn. One reason for this anemic rally could be the persistent background concerns about US/China trade, with the US ambassador to China warning that the two sides are still “very far apart”.

Key indicators of market confidence such as the Wall Street stock indexes and the AUDJPY exchange rate are currently moving sideways while other markets are consolidating after their recent gains and losses.
