GBPUSD – Retail FX traders have bought aggressively into British Pound weakness against the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR), and in fact crowds are now their most net-long GBPUSD since the pair last traded towards multi-year lows at $1.53. Total long interest has surged 50 percent week-over-week, giving further contrarian signal that the pair may continue lower.

Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Our sentiment-based trading strategies have sold the British Pound against the USD and Japanese Yen. We will continue to call for further weakness unless we see a substantive shift in crowd sentiment.
