Depression causes paralysis

The sentix risk radar, which systematically evaluates various risk sub-components in investor and price behaviour, still indicates opportunities in shares and crude oil. Although the tailwind from sentiment and positioning has softened somewhat (at the market low in mid-March 2020 the Z-score was +2!) Nevertheless, it is clear where the markets are drawing the strength for the price increase from. The "wall of worry" is big.

Chronic pessimism

Since mid-February, fear has been in investors' limbs. Since then, sentiment has been in the deep red range. The danger is increasing from week to week that a brief fear reflex will turn into a chronic strain, which will have a massive impact on basic confidence and cause lasting damage to investments, consumption and the spending climate.

The restrictive measures to contain the Corona crisis are increasingly viewed critically. Only the bad mood and the defensive positioning are still preventing a further price slump. But for how much longer?

Confidence is withdrawn from the stock markets

Investors remain defensive for the time being with equities. The institutional investors in particular have recently been stepping on the brakes. The risk level indicator explains the positioning behaviour. This restraint is now generating performance pressure as prices rise and, in conjunction with sentiment, is supporting the current rally of hope. If investors buy now, this would mean a "buy without conviction". One thing is certain: the bias continues to erode.
