Market Sentiment Improving But EUR/USD, EUR/GBP Weak | Webinar

Market Sentiment Improving But EUR/USD, EUR/GBP Weak | Webinar

What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence has been boosted by optimism that a US stimulus package will be agreed and that the US vaccine program is now on track.
  • However, the Euro is failing to benefit, with pairs like EUR/USD and EUR/GBP falling back.

Traders more confident

Traders are becoming more confident that US President Joe Biden will be able to push a sizeable stimulus package through Congress and that coronavirus vaccinations in the US are back on track – benefiting assets like stocks that are seen as more risky.

However, the Euro is failing to benefit, with EUR/GBP falling and EUR/USD dropping as well.
