Investor sentiment still poles apart on Equities, Euro & Bonds

The latest sentix survey provides a unique insight into investor opinion ahead of a potentially big week for Eurozone central bank policy news. On the equity front, survey participants have become more optimistic on the near-term outlook for the EuroSTOXX, but remain deeply pessimistic on the coming 6M (see Chart 2, page 3). Pessimism is also a feature on the Euro versus USD, though survey readings suggest that investors have become modestly less downbeat on the single currency in the past week (Chart 4). On the other side of the sentiment divide, survey readings on bonds are relatively positive, but suggest that medium-term optimism on both Eurozone and US bonds has weakened in the last couple of weeks (Chart 9, page 4). Overall, while the sentiment gap between Eurozone equities, bonds and FX has narrowed in recent days, medium-term survey readings remain poles apart.
