Trader Sentiment Bullish, GBP/USD Price Outlook Positive | Webinar

Trader Sentiment Bullish, GBP/USD Price Outlook Positive | Webinar

Martin Essex, MSTA,
What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Market confidence has returned as the chances of a US-China trade agreement rise, concerns about a hard Brexit recede and the latest US jobs data lift optimism.
  • That could give a further lift to the riskier currencies such as GBP, EUR and AUD, at the expense of the traditional safe havens.

Demand for riskier currencies could rise further

The currencies that traders regard as risky, like the British Pound, Euro and Australian Dollar could benefit further from an improvement in market sentiment as the US and China near a “phase one” trade deal, the chances of a no-deal Brexit recede and the latest US jobs data are well received.
