Market Sentiment Increasingly Positive | Webinar

Market Sentiment Increasingly Positive | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Market sentiment, news and analysis:

  • Stocks on Wall Street and in London are continuing to rise, suggesting that investor risk appetite remains high.
  • Another indicator of sentiment, the AUDJPY cross rate, also remains firm.
  • However, the price of gold – a traditional safe haven – is rising too, sounding a note of warning.

Risk sentiment positive

Market traders are continuing to buy into riskier assets such as New York and London stocks and the AUDJPY cross rate, suggesting that sentiment remains firm. However, the price of gold, which is traditionally seen as a safe haven, is also climbing – suggesting that some traders are reducing their risk profiles.
