GBPUSDOne-sided retail FX trader positioning warns that the Sterling may continue to trade into fresh lows versus the resurgent US Dollar.

Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Our data shows that approximately 55 percent of traders in our sample are currently long the GBP versus the USD, which gives us a modestly bearish contrarian trading bias. It’s nonetheless important to note that this is a significant pullback from the 70 percent we saw two months ago. The moderation suggests that momentum will slow as the Sterling approaches critical lows near $1.60.

A sustained flip towards crowd selling would help confirm a potentially important GBPUSD price low. And indeed a GBPUSD break above key trendline resistance favors a larger correction higher.
