Market Confidence Continues to Ebb Away | Webinar

Market Confidence Continues to Ebb Away | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Sentiment is weak in the global financial markets and a recovery seems unlikely for a while yet.
  • That is benefiting the traditional safe havens and weakening “risk on” assets.

Traders lacking confidence

Trading sentiment is poor, with traders moving from “risk on” assets such as stocks into safe havens such as the Swiss Franc, the Japanese Yen and US Treasuries. The US Dollar, which until recently was seen as a haven too, is also suffering.

Elsewhere, the sharp selloff in crude oil prices is continuing, and the British Pound remains under pressure from Brexit.

In this webinar, I looked at sentiment in all the major markets and how they could move in the days ahead.
