Market Sentiment Still Poor But Tentative Signs of Improvement | Webinar

Market Sentiment Still Poor But Tentative Signs of Improvement | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Market confidence is still weak as traders continue to opt for safe havens rather than riskier assets.
  • However, a near-term bounce is possible as sentiment improves marginally.

Trader confidence still weak but off its lows

Traders are continuing to prefer safe havens to riskier assets as risk aversion remains the dominant theme in the financial markets. However, a modest improvement in sentiment now seems possible.

On Wall Street, for example, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied marginally from last week’s lows.
