The US Dollar crash continues with the DXY Index now down over -2% since the start of trading on Sunday night in New York. EUR/USD cleared 1.2500 for the first time since December 2014, while GBP/USD jumped above 1.4300 for the first time since June 23, 2016 – the day of the Brexit vote. The fallout from US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s comments on US Dollar strength yesterday continue to impact price action, and if the ‘strong dollar policy’ is truly in question, more rough trading for the greenback may be ahead.

DailyFX US AM Digest: US Dollar Crash Continues after Mnuchin Comments

The North American economic calendar is dotted with several ‘low’ and ‘medium’ importance data releases, but all attention has been on the ECB rate decision this morning. With the ECB staying away from what appears to be the early stages of a currency war – following US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s comments in Davos – the Euro was able to surge above 1.2500 versus the US Dollar for the first time since December 2014.

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 30.3% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.31 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 20.4% lower than yesterday and 14.7% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.2% higher than yesterday and 0.9% 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. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EURUSD-bullish contrarian trading bias.
