EURUSD – Retail forex trading crowds continue to buy aggressively into Euro weakness versus the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR), and the clear shift in sentiment warns of a larger EURUSD breakdown.
Trade Implications – EURUSD: Our sentiment-based trading strategies continue to sell the Euro as retail traders continue to buy; total long interest is up 11.5 percent since last week, while speculative shorts are down 9.0 percent. The fact that the Euro has now broken below critical support at $1.3250 warns of a larger breakdown, and indeed overall market conditions favor continued USD gains.
