Market sentiment news and analysis:

  • Fears of a trade war remain the dominant market theme but retail traders are holding their nerve.
  • There have been few signs of a move into safe havens but the US Dollar is in demand.

Our trading forecasts for Q3 have been published; you can find them here.

And check out the IG Client Sentiment data to help you trade profitably.

Sentiment upbeat

Sentiment among financial market traders remains positive despite continuing concerns about a trade war between the US and China.

The USD is still in demand, with traders looking for it to strengthen whether risk is on or off.

Meanwhile, market confidence can be seen clearly on Wall Street, where prices have been rising since the start of July.
