Market sentiment analysis:

  • Overall trading sentiment is neutral.
  • However, confidence in the US Dollar is waning.
  • By contrast, the British Pound is shrugging off the continuing Brexit impasse.

US Dollar Shunned

Trader sentiment has turned against the US Dollar on a combination of factors including the US-China trade dispute, a dovish outlook for US monetary policy and poor corporate earnings.

However, market sentiment overall is neutral and there has been some demand for the British Pound on yet another important day for Brexit in the Westminster Parliament.

In this webinar, I looked at the charts of the major markets, the sentiment indicators on the calendar this week and how prices might move in the days ahead.
