EURUSDForex trading crowds remain heavily long the Euro versus the US Dollar, and a contrarian view of popular sentiment leaves us focused on continued EURUSD losses.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Total retail FX long positions in the EURUSD recently hit their highest on record as the pair traded to fresh lows. The exchange rate’s resilience above key support near $1.3300-1.3330 gives us pause as professional positioning hits multi-year extremes. Until we see a material shift in retail sentiment, however, our preference remains to sell any short-term bounces.
