Taking part is everything

Sentiment neutral, neutrality near record highs, neutral in the portfolios. This is the result of an investment behavior that basically illustrates the perplexity, but also underlines the desire to participate in the development of the stock markets. There is a sense of unease (falling bias), but no desire to miss out (neutral positioning). If there is also a reward mechanism for taking risks through rising prices, the danger of overconfidence increases. The picture appears much more favorable for silver.

  • Equities: You feel uneasy, but don't want to miss anything

The year of the dragon has begun

The Chinese celebrate their New Year and welcome the "Year of the Dragon". In the last few trading days, shares there have performed a "reversal". This was very noticeable in the mid-caps (CSI 1000), following a broad-based sell-off in January 2024. Investors have recognized for some time that the price decline there represents an investment opportunity: The bias is emancipating itself and paints a completely different picture than for the other equity markets. On the sector side, the usual picture is emerging: investors are in love with pharmaceuticals and technology stocks.

  • Equities: Overconfidence is also on the rise in the eurozone
  • Bonds: Improved starting position

High-risk situation for US equities

Surprisingly, the renewed all-time high in the S&P 500 is not fuelling investor sentiment. On the contrary, sentiment is actually falling. This represents a clear negative sentiment divergence. Added to this is the high risk situation, as indicated by the Overconfidence Index and the sentix Risk Radar. US equities are therefore a "hot potato".

  • Gold: Gold miners out of fashion beyond measure

Crisis in Germany remains stubborn

Print

The sentix economic index for the eurozone rises by +2.9 points to -12.9 points in February, the fourth consecutive increase. Nevertheless, the recovery process remains sluggish. This is mainly due to Germany. The current assessment there fell to -39.3 points, while expectations recovered only sluggishly by 2.3 points. With the expectations component still at -14.0 points, the recession theme therefore remains. Internationally, there are increasing signs of recovery. The US region in particular is scoring well, with the overall index rising by 5.9 points to 12.1 points. Asia also continues to impress. The Asia ex Japan (China) region and Japan itself continue to try to develop economic momentum. As a result, the sentix Global Aggregate climbs to its highest level since February 2022.

Germany still in crisis

Print

The sentix Economic Indicator for January shows the third consecutive improvement in the overall index for the eurozone. Situation and expectation values both rise by 1 point. And yet this is unlikely to be a turnaround. This is partly due to Germany, whose economy is still in recession and therefore in crisis. Internationally, there is positive news from Asia and Latin America. However, it is questionable whether this will be enough to reverse the global trend. This is because a new problem is on the horizon with regard to inflation and therefore central bank policy.
