Sentiment for EUR/USD is currently negative, with SSI (speculative sentiment index) reading at -1.27. With 53% of positioning long, SSI has a slight bias towards a EUR/USD decline. In the event of a further price decline, traders should look for SSI to extend to a negative extreme of -2.0 or less. Alternatively, in the event that the EUR/USD trades higher, traders should watch for SSI to neutralize and potentially flip towards a positive reading.
