Market Sentiment Data Point to Further USD Weakness Ahead | Webinar

Market Sentiment Data Point to Further USD Weakness Ahead | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence remains high, with the safe-haven US Dollar dropping but stocks still at or near their record highs.
  • Moreover IG client sentiment data suggest further losses ahead for USD.

Trader confidence still positive

Traders continue to buy into riskier assets like stocks as comments from central bank officials point to a lack of concern about inflation despite a global economic recovery, suggesting interest rates will remain low for the foreseeable future.

While stocks rise, losses for the safe-haven USD persist and IG client positioning data point to further weakness ahead for the Greenback.

The expected weakness of the US Dollar can be seen, for example, in a bullish signal for EUR/USD.
