EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD Sentiment Boosted by PMIs | Webinar

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD Sentiment Boosted by PMIs | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence has been lifted by the latest purchasing managers’ indexes from around the world suggesting an economic recovery now coronavirus lockdowns are being eased in many countries.
  • That has boosted stock markets, crude oil and risk-on currencies such as EUR, GBP and AUD.

Trader confidence rising

Traders are becoming more confident of an economic recovery now that coronavirus lockdowns are being eased in many countries. This is evident in the purchasing managers’ indexes for June in countries from Australia to the Eurozone and the UK.

Hopes that the phase-one trade deal between the US and China is still in place have helped sentiment too, although worries remain – including an increase in Covid-19 infections in China. Nonetheless, the PMIs have boosted risk-on assets including global stocks, crude oil, EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD.
