Trader sentiment worsens

Traders are becoming increasingly worried about the delta variant of Covid-19 and more lockdowns in Australia and several Asian countries. That’s sending investors out of riskier currencies such as GBP, CAD and NZD and into the safe-haven USD – trends that look likely to continue. Note though that US stock markets are holding up well.

Meanwhile, IG client positioning data are sending out a bullish signal on AUD/JPY as net-short positions rise steeply.
