Poor Market Sentiment Drives USD Buying | Webinar

Poor Market Sentiment Drives USD Buying | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Traders remain concerned about the US-China trade war and Brexit.
  • That’s strengthening the US Dollar and gold, while weakening Sterling and stock markets.

Risk off still dominant market theme

“Risk off” remains the main driver of financial markets as US-China trade tensions continue to push investors to the relative safety of the US Dollar and gold at the expense of global stocks. Meanwhile, the Pound remains weak on another potentially crucial week for Brexit.
