Sentiment for the AUD/USD reads at an extreme SSI (speculative sentiment index) value of +2.03. With the majority of open interest long, it suggests that there may be a further decline in price for the pair. If prices do find support at current levels, traders should monitor SSI. A reversal in price towards higher highs would potentially shift SSI towards more neutral values, or shift the index negative.
