Market sentiment analysis:

  • Confidence in the US Dollar is high and stock markets remain near their peaks.
  • However, sentiment is broadly negative towards most other assets.

US Dollar the currency of choice

USD continues to attract demand as confidence ebbs away from other assets – be they “risk on” like the Australian Dollar or “risk off” like the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc and gold.
