Sentiment Data Sending Bearish Signals for US Dollar | Webinar

What's on this page

Market sentiment analysis:

  • IG client positioning data are flashing bearish signals for the USD against many of the other major currencies.
  • That’s despite ongoing concerns about US-China trade and a possible Turkish invasion of the Kurdish-held region of Syria.

IG Client Sentiment data bearish for USD

The latest IG retail trader positioning data suggest losses for the US Dollar despite its role as a safe haven that might have been expected to benefit from the continuing US-China trade tensions and reported preparations by Turkey for a military operation in northeast Syria after the US began pulling back troops from the border, opening the way for a Turkish attack on Kurdish forces.
