The British Pound also fell UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and Brexit Secretary David Davis wrote in a joint article that the EU risks another global financial crisis if it doesn’t give London’s bankers a favorable trade deal.

Retail trader data shows 40.0% of traders are net-long GBP/USD, with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.5 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Dec 28 when GBP/USD traded near 1.33732; price has moved 1.0% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 5.7% lower than yesterday and 7.4% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 11.4% lower than yesterday and 15.8% lower from last week.

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