Sentiment Caught Between Virus Hopes and Fears | Webinar

Sentiment Caught Between Virus Hopes and Fears | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Traders are not confident that a second coronavirus outbreak can be avoided despite a boost to sentiment from an easing of coronavirus restrictions in many countries.
  • The result is that many markets are moving sideways within narrow trading ranges.

Trader confidence in neutral

Trader confidence is being buffeted by hopes on one side that an easing of coronavirus restrictions in many countries could lead to an economic recovery and fears on the other that if they are lifted too soon there could be a resurgence of infections.

As a result, most major currency, stock and commodity markets are trading sideways within narrow trading ranges awaiting further news. One exception is AUD/JPY, which continues to trend higher.
