The Euro traded broadly lower yesterday, in a move that the newswires attributed to anxiety ahead of the March 4 general election in Italy. DailyFX Sr. Currency Strategist Ilya Spivak has argued that the single currency may top the list of major trend reversals in 2018 following stellar performance last year.

The New Zealand Dollar rose, supported by a pickup in local bond yields that may reflect a hawkish shift in RBNZ policy bets. The Australian Dollar fell however, in a move that might have been corrective of recent gains after CFTC data put speculative futures positioning at its most net-short in 11 months.

Retail trader data shows 37.5% of traders are net-long AUD/USD, with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.66 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Dec 19 when AUD/USD traded near 0.76457; price has moved 2.8% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 9.8% lower than yesterday and 6.0% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.9% lower than yesterday and 2.8% higher from last week.

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