At the start of the week, three speeches by various Federal Reserve policymakers are due that should generate headlines and provoke price action development in the US Dollar.

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 28.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.57 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 18.8% higher than yesterday and 55.4% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.0% higher than yesterday and 14.3% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EURUSD 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 EURUSD price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.
