The Canadian Dollar was one of the biggest movers today, falling broadly against its major counterparts as BOC’s Governor Steven Poloz cooled hawkish policy bets. Mr. Poloz said that the central bank “will remain cautious on future rate moves” and that the economy “has room to expand without fueling inflation”.

The anti-risk Japanese Yen also underperformed on Tuesday, though it could have been far worse. It was initially undermined by gains in Japanese shares during the Asia trading session. However, a retreat in Wall Street later on Donald Trump’s replacement for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave the Yen some relief.

Meanwhile the British Pound gained as UK Chancellor Philip Hammond presented his Spring statement. He cut the budget deficit forecast for the 2017/18 year to 2.2 percent of GDP from 2.4 and gave a positive outlook on employment and wage growth.

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

CLICK HERE to learn more about the IG Client Sentiment Index

Retail trader data shows 39.4% of NZD/USD traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.54 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Jan 05 when NZD/USD traded near 0.70246; price has moved 4.2% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 3.0% lower than yesterday and 9.6% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 20.4% higher than yesterday and 6.1% 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. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger NZD/USD-bullish contrarian trading bias.
