Market Sentiment Data Bullish for USD/JPY, AUD/JPY, EUR/JPY

Market sentiment analysis:

  • IG client sentiment figures, which show how retail traders are positioned in various markets, suggest possible weakness ahead for the Japanese Yen.
  • The data are sending out bullish signals for USD/JPY, AUD/JPY, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY.

Trader sentiment broadly positive

Traders remain largely optimistic about the markets, preferring riskier assets like stocks and currencies such as the Euro, the British Pound and the Australian Dollar to safe havens such as the US Dollar. Confidence has been boosted by the receding chances of the US Presidential election being disrupted by Donald Trump’s illness and by rising hopes of a US stimulus package.

Meanwhile, IG client sentiment data – which show the positioning of retail traders – are sending out negative signals for the Japanese Yen, with USD/JPY, AUD/JPY, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY all bullish.
