Asia AM Digest: Commodity Currencies Rise Alongside Stocks

Retail trader data shows 37.6% of traders are net-long EUR/JPY, with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.66 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Aug 04 when EUR/JPY traded near 129.226; price has moved 2.2% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 3.1% higher than yesterday and 21.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 4.5% lower than yesterday and 28.2% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EUR/JPY prices may continue to rise. Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current EUR/JPY price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.
