Market sentiment analysis:
- Confidence in European stocks and the Euro has improved after the deal agreed between the EU nations on a recovery fund to boost the bloc’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
- However, falls in crosses such as EUR/JPY, EUR/CHF and EUR/GBP suggest that market sentiment towards the Euro could soon turn negative.
Trader confidence in Euro deal fragile
Traders could yet have second thoughts about the €750 billion recovery fund agreed by the EU nations to help the bloc recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. While European stock markets have strengthened and the Euro has held its ground against the Dollar, weakness in Euro crosses suggests that sentiment towards the single currency is not as strong as it seems.
