Market Sentiment Poor: Gold, JPY May Climb Further on Risk Aversion | Webinar

Market Sentiment Poor: Gold, JPY May Climb Further on Risk Aversion | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,

Market sentiment analysis:


Trader confidence ebbs away

Traders are becoming increasingly concerned about the spread of the delta variant of Covid-19 and its likely impact on the global economy. As a result, stocks and risk-on currencies like AUD, CAD and GBP may continue to slide against assets seen as less risky such as Gold, JPY and USD.

The impact so far can been seen, for example, in AUD/JPY, where there is no sign yet of its slide lower coming to an end.
