Market Sentiment Neutral but Nasdaq, Copper, Iron Ore Trending Higher | Webinar
Market sentiment analysis:
- Trader confidence is broadly neutral at present, with markets reacting to coronavirus news, economic data and renewed hopes of a US stimulus package.
- However, it is still possible to find trending markets, with the Nasdaq 100, copper, iron ore and lumber all still moving higher.
Trader confidence positive in tech stocks, several commodities
Trader sentiment is broadly neutral at present, with confidence lifted by the start of vaccinations against coronavirus in the UK, with the US to follow, decent Chinese data and hopes of a US fiscal stimulus package offset by rising Covid-19 cases in several countries.
However, a variety of assets are still trending higher, including the Nasdaq 100 index of US tech stocks and commodities such as copper, iron ore and lumber.
