Market Sentiment Rally Lifts EUR, GBP, AUD, but Stocks Lag


Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is relatively buoyant in the currency markets, benefiting FX pairs such as EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD at the expense of the safe-haven US Dollar.
  • However, there is less confidence in the stock markets, where a tentative rally seems to have paused for breath.

Traders in the FX market look to be increasingly confident, helping currency pairs such as EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD, ahead of the first US Presidential debate. At the same time, the safe-haven US Dollar is weakening, while the stock markets are pausing after their recent gains.
