Positive Market Sentiment Still in Place

Market sentiment analysis:

  • The “risk on” trend in markets is continuing although in stocks, in particular, the chances of a correction are increasing.
  • For now, the good news continues to outweigh the bad.

Trading sentiment still constructive

Trader confidence remains high in the financial markets, with the stock markets still powering ahead and no strong demand for the traditional safe havens. While some assets are still in quite narrow trading ranges, good news such as the reprieve for Huawei from US sanctions continues to be paid more attention to than bad news such as the unrest in Hong Kong.

Narrow trading ranges can be seen in many assets at present but the US stock markets remain in buoyant mood despite fears of a possible correction or even a new trend lower.
