Market sentiment was poor last week because of the row between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. However, there was some relief in the markets Monday that nothing had worsened over the weekend, helping sentiment improve.

There are three sentiment indicators to look out for this week, all from the US: the Empire State manufacturing index Tuesday, the Philly Fed business outlook survey Thursday and the University of Michigan consumer confidence report Friday.

IG Client Sentiment data are currently pointing to stronger US stock prices and a stronger Australian Dollar, suggesting risk aversion is easing, but also to a stronger Japanese Yen. The Commitments of Traders report from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission shows that large speculators increased their short positions in the US Dollar Index (DXY) for the third week in a row.
