Using Trader Sentiment for Forex, Stocks & Commodities

Sentiment may improve technical analysis and enable more consistent trading, particularly for those looking to trade against the consensus. Find out more with our guide to trading with IG client sentiment data, as well as how to approach sentiment analysis in forex trading
