Market Sentiment: Strong China PMI Fails to Lift AUD/USD, EUR/USD, GBP/USD | Webinar

Market Sentiment: Strong China PMI Fails to Lift AUD/USD, EUR/USD, GBP/USD | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence remains weak judging by further declines in ‘risk-on’ pairs like AUD/USD, EUR/USD and GBP/USD despite a strong June manufacturing PMI from China.
  • Sentiment is weak towards stocks too, while physical gold remains the asset of choice.

Trader sentiment stuck in neutral

Traders remain wary of stocks and “risk-on” currency pairs such as AUD/USD, EUR/USD and GBP/USD despite a better-than expected purchasing managers’ index for the Chinese manufacturing sector in June. While the US Dollar edges higher, the gold price is weaker but still close to its highest level since November 2012.
