Today, market sentiment is one of risk aversion. European stocks face another cautious session with rising US-China tensions and no progress in negotiations on the new US stimulus package. The Dollar regains some of the ground lost on Thursday, with the currency's DXY index trading again above 93.00. Traders are likely to take a cautious approach to currency risk ahead of the US-China trade talks on 15 August.

Today, the market sentiment is one of risk aversion. There are no signs of progress in the negotiations on the aid plan for the coronavirus in the United States, and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the White House could ban other Chinese applications that it considers to jeopardise the country's national security. The Dollar traded on the defensive during the Asian session on Thursday, as investor optimism about the approval of new fiscal stimulus in Washington seemed to decline, which reduces the currency's attractiveness.

The major European stocks started higher today and are continuing to hold the gains, thanks to the successful recovery of initial losses by the end of all trading sessions on Tuesday, and also because of the fresh summer record for the U.S. broad market S&P500 index futures above 3325, where it stood on midday Wednesday. Some positive earning reports in Europe fuelled the movement as even the travel and leisure sectors, which are considered to be the most exposed to the corona-related restrictions, led the morning surge.

Low inflation in developed economies have become a curse since the Great financial crisis of 2008. It discourages producers, as inconsiderable rise of prices means low demand and difficulties in sales. Thus, the growth of the economy is also under threat. Developed economies have been struggling for several years to meet the inflation target of two % and yet have hardly succeeded in it. Many quantitive easing programs and lowering interest rates throughout the globe have been tailored to meet this ultimate goal. Such efforts were made consistently by the U.S.

Today, market sentiment is an appetite for risk. News that the United States and China will meet to discuss trade and expectations of progress in negotiations in Washington over a stimulus package are driving the current positive sentiment in the market. The dollar retreated in the Asian session on Wednesday, following up on the previous day's losses, with more bets that the US Federal Reserve will ease monetary policy further and with investors attentive to negotiations in the US Congress on new fiscal stimulus.

Today, market sentiment is relatively mixed. Democratic leaders and White House officials seem cautiously optimistic after another round of talks on Monday about the new coronavirus aid package, under increasing pressure to reach an agreement since millions of Americans are living without the $600 a week unemployment benefit supplement, and U.S. President Donald Trump has launched potential executive measures. The Dollar gained ground on the Yen this Tuesday in Asia, after robust economic data has increased risk appetite by putting the Yen under pressure as a safe asset.

Today's market sentiment is of an appetite for risk. Good manufacturing and service data across Europe and China are fueling hope for a faster-than-expected recovery. European equities and U.S. futures continue to rise this Monday, before another week of results as discussions continue over a US pandemic relief package. Yields of US Treasurys fell on Friday, registering a weekly and monthly fall due to fears over the economic consequences for the global economy of the coronavirus.

Yesterday, investors assessed the potential terms of the next stimulus package and the easing of coronavirus infections, while digesting the results of major US companies. The Federal Reserve’s Chairman Jerome Powell also dominated the attention of the markets. In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 index gained 0.5%, at the end of a session in which it fluctuated between gains and losses. The German DAX index closed at the waterline, the French CAC index lost 0.2% and the British FTSE 100 index rose 0.4%.

The narratives of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s (Fed) Chairman after a rather walkthrough-room meeting yesterday have not impressed the markets much. It was too casual by pandemic time standards and prompted assets that had been rising in price madly for several days in a row, like gold, silver or some currencies, only to repeat their previous highs this time. That was followed by a slamming wave of profit taking, which triggered some downside pullbacks. For example, just a little bit below $1954/toz in gold spot contracts for now after testing $1980/toz last night.

September Futures for the U.S. Dollar Index (DXU0), which tracks the Greenback weighted average position against a basket of six other currencies, are already four % down since the beginning of July. Now they are located more than ten % lower than its highest values in March, at the peak of the quarantine-related safe-haven demand for the U.S. currency. After such a long trip, some currency pairs may take a kind of time-out for the nearest couple of trading sessions, ahead of the proposed announcement of the U.S.
