Retail trader data shows 52.3% of traders are net-long USD/JPY, with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.1 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.8% higher than yesterday and 2.6% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.7% lower than yesterday and 2.3% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USD/JPY prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger USD/JPY-bearish contrarian trading bias.
