GoldRetail forex traders have bought aggressively into Gold price weakness against the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR). We think gold has further room to fall.

Trade Implications – Gold: Last week we highlighted the fact that traders were very marginally short Gold against the USD—a clear break with the virtually non-stop buying seen from 2012 gold peaks near $1800.

The noteworthy shift left us cautiously in favor of short-term strength, but even at the time we highlighted that long-term studies favor continued Gold price declines.

Recent crowd XAUUSD buying only confirms our bearish bias, and indeed it remains attractive to sell short-term bounces.
