Market Sentiment Hit by Trade War Worries | Webinar

Market Sentiment Hit by Trade War Worries | Webinar

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trading sentiment has been hit hard by the tit-for-tat tariffs imposed by the US and China.
  • That is damaging global stocks while benefiting the markets’ traditional safe havens.

US-China trade war in focus

The imposition of new tariffs by the US on Chinese goods, and the Chinese threat of retaliation, are leading to risk-off moves in the markets, with the Japanese Yen and US Treasuries the principal beneficiaries while gold and bitcoin are in demand too, albeit less so. By contrast, money continues to flow out of global stocks.

As an example, AUDJPY is falling hard as traders see the Australian Dollar as a proxy for the Chinese economy.
