The US Dollar was up broadly against its major counterparts on Thursday, rising alongside local front-end government bond yields. This might have been a pre-positioning move for next week’s Fed monetary policy announcement. There, a rate hike is unanimously priced in but more interesting will be policymakers’ forward guidance.

US stocks swung throughout the session, ending the day little changed. Declines were amplified though when Special Counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents. The anti-risk Japanese Yen gained while higher-yielding currencies such as the New Zealand and Australian Dollars suffered.

Earlier in the day, the British Pound fell hard when UK Brexit Secretary David Davis said that “no deal is better than a bad deal if UK is punished”. However, declines in sentiment-sensitive currencies later in the day overshadowed Sterling’s performance and it finished higher against them.

Retail trader data shows 35.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.82 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Jan 05 when NZD/USD traded near 0.70246; price has moved 3.6% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 14.8% lower than yesterday and 32.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.2% higher than yesterday and 11.3% 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.
