Market Sentiment Still Poor, Haven Assets in Demand | Webinar
Market sentiment analysis:
- Trader confidence remains low, although demand can still be seen for assets with higher returns that are perceived to be inherently riskier, such as stocks.
- Against this background, demand persists too for safe havens.
Traders dip their toes into riskier assets
Trading sentiment remains poor on continuing worries about the US-China trade dispute, Brexit and the conflict between Turkey and the Kurds in northern Syria, leading to continuing demand for safe havens. However, interest also remains in the stock markets and other riskier assets.
