Confidence among investors remains high as robust global economic growth continues to send asset prices generally higher. Euro-Zone sentiment indicators released Tuesday came in below expectations but still suggested further gains in GDP in the region.

Looking ahead, US consumer confidence, Japanese consumer confidence, the UK manufacturing PMI and the US ISM are all on the agenda and will likely underscore the current market optimism. IG Client Sentiment data point to the US Dollar resuming its downward path.
