Market Sentiment Data Still Bullish for EUR/USD | Webinar
Market sentiment analysis:
- Trader confidence remains high on signs that the Federal Reserve may not, after all, signal a tightening of US monetary policy at this week’s Jackson Hole symposium because of the spread of the delta variant of coronavirus in the country.
- Fed Chair Jerome Powell is due to speak at 10am New York time / 3pm London time Friday at the conference, which will now be held online.
Traders still optimistic
Traders still remain broadly positive towards riskier assets as the spread of the delta variant of Covid-19 in the US increases the likelihood that Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell may not, after all, signal a tapering of US monetary policy when he speaks – virtually – at the Fed’s Jackson Hole symposium Friday.
EUR/USD, for example, remains in demand as traders shun safe havens like the US Dollar, although there were signs early Tuesday that Monday’s interest in risk assets like the Euro was beginning to wane.
