The US Dollar soared against its major counterparts on Friday, buoyed by better-than-expected US labor-market data. The sentiment-linked Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Dollars tracked a steep drop in stock prices.

Risk aversion brought US shares their largest one-day drop in 16 months. The newswires cited fears of a steeper Fed rate hike cycle as the catalyst for the selloff. The perennially anti-risk Japanese Yen and Swiss Franc duly advanced.

The Euro rallied as German Chancellor Angela Merkel prepared for the final round of coalition talks with the rival SPD party in an effort to secure a grand coalition government for the Eurozone’s largest economy. The single currency scored gains versus all of the majors except the greenback.

IG Client Sentiment Index Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

Asia AM Digest: US Dollar Up on Jobs Data, Euro Eyeing Germany

CLICK HERE to learn more about the IG Client Sentiment Index

Retail trader data shows 27.0% of traders are net-long NZD/USD, with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.7 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Jan 05 when NZD/USD traded near 0.70972; price has moved 3.6% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 1.9% lower than yesterday and 16.9% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 3.1% lower than yesterday and 7.9% higher from last week.

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