Market Sentiment Improving on Vaccine Hopes | Webinar

Market Sentiment Improving on Vaccine Hopes | Webinar

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is rising on hopes that an experimental Covid-19 vaccine could provide protection and news of plans for a €500 billion coronavirus recovery plan for the EU.
  • A UK announcement of lower tariffs on imports post-Brexit is also helping, although worries about a potential trade dispute between Australia and China over barley could dampen confidence.

Traders more confident about risk assets

Traders are becoming more confident about the outlook for riskier assets after the US biotech company Moderna said its experimental Covid-19 vaccine produced protective antibodies in a small group of healthy volunteers. Sentiment was boosted too by news that France and Germany are planning a €500 billion coronavirus recovery fund for the EU, as well as by a UK announcement of lower import tariffs post Brexit.

These developments are outweighing concerns about a possible trade dispute between China and Australia over barley as well as an increase in the Covid-19 death toll in the UK.
