Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is broadly neutral at the moment, as many markets trade within narrow ranges.
  • Among the exceptions, Bitcoin continues to power ahead and IG client sentiment data are sending a bearish signal on GBP/JPY.

Bearish signal on GBP/JPY

Traders are unsure currently about the next move in the markets generally, with Bitcoin among the few markets not trading in narrow ranges. However, retail traders are increasingly long GBP/JPY and that is sending a bearish contrarian trading signal.
