Market Sentiment: How to Avoid Volatility | Webinar

Market Sentiment: How to Avoid Volatility | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence has rallied strongly Tuesday after the recent sharp falls in stock markets and crude oil prices.
  • Confidence has been boosted by hopes of stimulus by the authorities and a possible rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Russia over oil supply.
  • In the meantime, some traders might be looking for less volatile assets to avoid the turmoil elsewhere.

Trader confidence returns

Traders are more confident Tuesday after the previous tumbles in stock markets and crude oil prices. Sentiment has been boosted by both hopes of action by the authorities to avoid economic damage and by signs that Saudi Arabia and Russia might compromise in their oil supply dispute.
