Sentiment data sending bearish signals

Traders remain concerned about the continuing lack of agreement on a US fiscal stimulus package, the upcoming elections in the US and the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic currently flowing through Europe. That is leading to many assets – including FX pairs, commodities and stock indexes – trading within narrow ranges.

However, IG client sentiment data - which track the positioning of retail traders - are still suggesting downward moves on the way for several currency pairs and crosses, including USD/JPY, AUD/USD and GBP/USD.
