Market Sentiment Improves on Fear of Missing Out | Webinar

Market Sentiment Improves on Fear of Missing Out | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is returning on hopes that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic could be coming closer.
  • However, there are few signs yet that the markets have hit rock bottom and it’s arguably too early to predict a full-scale recovery just yet.

Traders fear missing out on market rally

Traders are dipping their toes into the markets for risk-on assets like stocks, the Australian Dollar and crude oil as hopes grow that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic could be close. However, it remains too early to predict a full-scale recovery and a move away from safe havens such as the US Dollar and cash.

On the bright side, the spread of Covid-19 seems to be slowing, while central banks and governments continue to act to cushion its economic impact. However, a global recession – if not a depression – still seems inevitable.

In this webinar, I looked at the trends in the major currency, commodity and stock markets, at the forward-looking data on the economic calendar this week, at the IG Client Sentiment page on the DailyFX website, and at the IG Client Sentiment reports that accompany it.
