Market sentiment analysis:

Market sentiment

Trader sentiment is positive towards the US Dollar but negative towards the British Pound as traders show little appetite for stocks but, at the same time, see little need to buy into the traditional safe havens such as the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc and gold.

As the chart below shows, the Dollar index, which measures it against a basket of other currencies, is continuing the advance that began on June 25. You can read more about the Dollar here: USD Price Outlook: More Gains Possible Ahead of Fed Meeting

USD Index Price Chart, Daily Timeframe (January 30 – July 9, 2019)
