Positive US Dollar Sentiment Dominates Markets | Webinar

Positive US Dollar Sentiment Dominates Markets | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Confidence in the US Dollar is the dominant market theme at present thanks to hopes of a breakthrough in the US-China trade talks and a tentative deal to avoid another partial US government shutdown.
  • That is lifting USD against the Euro, the Japanese Yen and the British Pound.

US Dollar confidence high

Sentiment towards the US Dollar remains positive as US congressional negotiators reach a tentative deal to avoid another partial US government shutdown and US officials arrive in Beijing ahead of high-level trade talks.

In response, global stocks and the US Dollar continue to climb, with USD up against all its major rivals.
