Sentiment poles apart on Equities versus Gold

The latest sentix survey provides a unique insight into investors’ opinion of markets at the end of a turbulent week. A bout of ‘risk-off’ can be seen in survey responses on sector preferences, with Autos pessimism versus the market reaching historic extremes, while sentiment has sharply improved towards Utilities. At the same time, sentiment on the near-term outlook for Gold has reached the high-end of its historic range. In contrast, investor sentiment on equities has also fallen to the low-end of its historic range. Interestingly, however, near-term pessimism has not undermined investors’ increasingly positive medium-term strategic bias on equities. Geo-political concerns appear to have shaken investors’ confidence on the near-term, but have not stirred them to re-assess their upbeat views on the medium-term outlook for equity markets.
