What is Market Sentiment?
Market sentiment is the general feeling about the climate of the market as expressed by the direction of market prices.
How Does Market Sentiment Work?
Market sentiment, as the name suggests, describes the outlook of investors in a market. Market sentiment is most evident in overall price trends. For example, rising prices suggests an optimistic (bullish) market sentiment, and falling prices suggests a poor (bearish) market sentiment.
