The US Dollar is gaining back ground today after trading lower in a choppy session yesterday, once again thanks to influences outside of its own borders. Weak data out of both the Eurozone and the United Kingdom has seen the Euro and Pound Sterling sell off this morning: the ZEW Survey points to economic growth conditions peaking for the Eurozone; and the February UK CPI report missed expectations. With respect to the latter, expectations for this week’s Bank of England policy meeting were low to begin with given that no new Quarterly Inflation Report will be revealed. Rates markets are continuing to price in May 2018 for the next 25-bps rate hike, as there remains greater than a 70% chance implied by overnight index swaps.

IG Client Sentiment Index Chart of the Day: EURUSD

US AM Digest: ZEW Survey, UK CPI Drop EUR/USD, GBP/USD

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 38.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.59 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Apr 18 when EURUSD traded near 1.0541; price has moved 16.5% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.4% lower than yesterday and 5.7% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 9.0% higher than yesterday and 0.8% lower 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.
