What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is high ahead of Friday’s US non-farm payrolls number, with assets such as gold, crude oil, stocks and the Canadian Dollar all benefiting.
  • Longer term, the focus remains on inflation and whether rising consumer prices will persuade the global central banks to tighten monetary policy..

Trader confidence high

Traders are buying into assets such as gold, crude oil, global stocks and ‘risk on’ currencies like the Canadian Dollar ahead of Friday’s US employment report. As the chart below shows, the gold price, for example, has topped the $1,900/ounce level to reach its highest price since January 8.
