Market sentiment, news and analysis:

  • Stocks on Wall Street and in London are continuing to rise, suggesting that investor risk appetite remains high.

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.
