Trading sentiment analysis:
- Market confidence is improving further on hopes that China will stimulate its domestic economy and a US-China trade war can be averted.
- So far, that is outweighing concerns about the partial US government shutdown, Brexit and weak German economic data.
Market sentiment improves further
Confidence in the financial markets is continuing to improve as hopes rise that the Chinese government will act to stimulate its economy and that the trade war talks between China and the US are progressing. That is helping to boost “risk on” assets like the Dow Jones Industrial Average at the expense of “safe havens” such as the Australian Dollar.
