Market Sentiment Still Positive on Vaccine Hopes

Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence is likely to remain high in the coming days despite a pause for breath.
  • While the stock markets have responded most to the news of vaccines to combat the coronavirus pandemic, the US Dollar is still looking weak and oil is still looking firm.

Traders still confident vaccines will lift the markets

Traders remain positive in the wake of the news of two coronavirus vaccines that could eventually bring the pandemic under control and lift the global economy out of its slump. While more profit-taking is likely short-term after the gains for stock markets in particular over the past nine days, it is unlikely to last long.
