Where Next for Nasdaq, Bitcoin, Other Assets? – Market Sentiment Webinar

Where Next for Nasdaq, Bitcoin, Other Assets? – Market Sentiment Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence has ebbed away in assets such as the Nasdaq and Bitcoin but this could yet prove to be just a correction after their recent gains.
  • In that case, market sentiment could improve and prompt a resumption of the recent trend higher.

Trader confidence ebbs away

Traders have started selling the assets that have surged in recent weeks, such as the Nasdaq index of US technology stocks and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. However, the economic background remains positive, with a recovery from the slump caused by the coronavirus pandemic still on track thanks to successful Covid-19 vaccination programs in the US, UK and elsewhere.

That suggests the current downturn in assets such as the Nasdaq could be simply a correction and that their prices will rise again once it is over.
