Market Sentiment: USD, Stocks, Gold Price Wait for US Aid Deal

0
26


Market sentiment analysis:

  • Trader confidence remains high but no big move either way is likely until the White House and Congress agree, or fail to agree, on a package to help the US economy recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
  • The ISM manufacturing index was well received and both the gold price and the Nasdaq remain near their record highs but the oil price will suffer if output is increased.

Traders still confident

Traders remain broadly optimistic about market prices, with gold and the Nasdaq both still near their record highs, but much will depend on whether the White House and Congress can agree on another package to help the US economy recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) index for the US manufacturing sector in July was well received, helping many of the markets, but crude oil sentiment is less bullish as traders watch out for a possible increase in output.
