Market sentiment analysis:

  • Market sentiment remains constructive but prices are consolidating as traders decide whether to remain long of riskier assets such as stocks.
  • That could mean some more buying of safe havens such as gold.

Trader sentiment less buoyant

Financial market trading sentiment remains positive but traders seem to be taking a breather before deciding whether to continue to increase their long positions in riskier assets such as stocks or opt for the relative safety of havens such as gold.
