The US Dollar is down for the second consecutive day, shedding its temporary ‘safe haven’ status as both equities and bond yields move lower on Tuesday. Market participants have proven skeptical over the current trading environment, with measures of equity volatility remaining high relative to their 20-day moving averages (VIX was at 27.14 at the time this report; the 20-day average was 18.74). Measures of FX volatility have started to perk up as well. Elsewhere, the British Pound received a boost after the January CPI report showed price pressures remain firm, giving credibility to some BOE policymakers’ recent claims that a rate hike may need to come sooner than currently anticipated (rates markets pricing in August 2018 for next hike).

GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 49.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.04 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 14.5% higher than yesterday and 16.7% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.7% higher than yesterday and 11.7% lower from last week.

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