Market Sentiment

« Back to Glossary Index

Market Sentiment refers to the overall crowd psychology or “mood of the market” at a particular time. It can be bullish (positive), bearish (negative), or relatively neutral.

Market sentiment can have an impact on particular stocks, commodities, or currency pairs. Sentiment often leads markets to move away from what might be considered fair value. A good example is a boom in a particular commodity or when a stock receives positive news.
