Trader sentiment turns against GBP, gold, oil, tech stocks
Trader confidence in GBP is receding as the EU and the UK argue about their relationship once the Brexit transition period ends on December 31. At the same time, sentiment is souring towards gold, oil and US tech stocks – benefiting USD – as traders worry about rising levels of Covid-19 infections, the lack so far of an agreement on a fiscal boost for the US economy and plans to decouple the US and Chinese economies.
