Market Conditions

Whether we are trading forex or stocks it is very important to take into consideration the market conditions and in particular the sentiment towards risk.
The avversion to risk will dictate the trend and influence investors decisions. For example a high avversion to risk may lead to panic and in turn to a shift towards “safe havens” such as the dollar or the japanese yen.
Good benchmarks for risk trends are the S&P 500, the Nikkey 225 and Gold
