3 Indicators to Measure Forex Market Sentiment

While all forex traders bring their own strategies, preferences, and emotions to the trading market, the collective trends behind those sentiments can reveal a lot about how overall trader sentiments may shape price movements and forex market activity.

May Recap: USD Weakness, Gold, CAD & Crude Oil Strength

Welcome to our look back at the previous month and a look ahead to what we might expect to see throughout June and beyond.
