“We spend so much time focusing on our ‘edge’ and eventually we move on to work in risk and positioning management.

Net speculative $GBPUSD positioning among retail FX traders (via the IGCS) has dropped to its heaviest short view in years. Scale of short interest itself highest since mid-December https://www.dailyfx.com/sentiment?ref-author=Kicklighter&CHID=9&QPID=917719 https://t.co/sHvDlDNQSd

This was not one of my top Dollar pairs to monitor for candidacy should the currency reverse, but $NZDUSD has noteworthy technicals and retail traders at IG have halved their shorts https://www.dailyfx.com/sentiment?ref-author=Kicklighter&CHID=9&QPID=917719 https://t.co/QFV3MAJkAB
To fully appreciate the weight of the 1.1700-1750 area as a technical zone for $EURUSD, it is best to look at the monthly chart. We just closed out the largest month's rally since September 2010 https://t.co/xqiTqchxlJ
