Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Overall market confidence has improved as the chances of a US-China trade agreement rise and concerns about a hard Brexit recede.
  • That is boosting “risk on” assets at the expense of safe havens.

Traders favor riskier assets

Assets seen as riskier, including stocks and the Australian Dollar, are attracting demand and could rise further as worries about the US-China trade dispute and fears of a hard Brexit begin to fade. While a retracement could occur at any time, for now these trends seem intact.
