Webinar: What the Sentiment Indicators Are Pointing to For Market Prices

Webinar: What the Sentiment Indicators Are Pointing to For Market Prices

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

Talking Points

- Investor confidence remains high and metals prices are pointing to a strong global economy.

- However, sentiment indicators suggest that the US Dollar could weaken.

Investor sentiment indicators, like the Sentix index released Monday and the better-known ZEW, can be important for market pricing but should be treated with caution as they may just reflect optimism caused by the current strength of stock markets and therefore be backward rather than forward looking.

At present, they suggest that confidence is high, and the present upswing in the prices of copper and iron ore and not just lifting mining stocks but are pointing to a buoyant global economy.

However, IG Client Sentiment data are flashing amber for the US Dollar, as is the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Bull & Bear index, which is in extreme bullish territory and therefore suggesting a “meaningful” market correction.
