Market sentiment analysis and talking points:

- Market confidence is improving as traders look to the global economy rather than trade wars.

- However, so far, the move from safe havens into more risky assets has been relatively light.

Trader confidence recovers

Investors are gaining in confidence, moving from safe-haven assets such as the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc, gold and US Treasuries into assets seen as riskier and potentially more profitable. However, the rally in market sentiment remains fragile.

This can be seen in the chart below of the Australian Dollar against the Japanese Yen, which is regarded widely as a good indicator of confidence. It has begun to rally but is still well below the peaks reached earlier this year.

On the plus side, a good US jobs report and easing concerns about the Italian political situation have boosted sentiment. However, Brexit remains a worry and there is some nervousness ahead of the June 12/13 Federal Reserve meeting, where US interest rates are expected to be increased.
