Trading Sentiment Upbeat for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD | Webinar

Trading Sentiment Upbeat for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is high on hopes of a swift and strong economic recovery after the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
  • However, they may have underestimated the importance of the turmoil on US streets and ongoing US-China trade tensions.
  • The rally in risk-on assets such as stocks, crude oil, the base metals and currency pairs such as EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD could therefore reverse at any time.

Trader confidence too high?

Traders have become increasingly confident of a swift and strong global economic recovery from the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic, bidding up the prices of “risk-on” assets such as stocks, crude oil, copper and currency pairs such as EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD.

For now, the upward trend in risk assets looks like continuing. However, the violence on US streets and the ongoing US-China trade dispute could yet send them down again in due course.

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.
