Market sentiment analysis:

  • Many of the financial markets are currently trading sideways, awaiting developments in the coronavirus pandemic and the various disputes between the US and China.
  • However, there are bullish contrarian trading signals for EUR/JPY and EUR/CHF from the IG Client Sentiment data.

Bullish signals for EUR/JPY and EUR/CHF from sentiment data

Traders are in a wait-and-see mood in many financial markets, waiting for positive or negative news about the Covid-19 pandemic and the various disputes between the US and China. However, taking a contrarian view of IG client positioning is currently yielding bullish signals for both EUR/JPY and EUR/CHF.

As the charts below show, both pairs have been heading higher this week.

Moreover, the IG client sentiment data suggest more gains to come:

For EUR/JPY, the figures show 41.70% of traders are net-long, with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.40 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.57% lower than yesterday and 16.93% lower than last week, while the number of traders net-short is 12.56% higher than yesterday and 20.60% higher from last week.

At DailyFX, we typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EUR/JPY 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 EUR/JPY-bullish contrarian trading bias.

For EUR/CHF, the numbers show 71.03% of traders are net-long, with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.45 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.24% higher than yesterday and 1.54% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.33% higher than yesterday and 14.29% higher from last week.

The fact traders are net-long suggests EUR/CHF prices may continue to fall.Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment suggest the current EUR/CHF price trend may continue.

In this webinar, I looked at the trends in the major currency, commodity and stock markets, at the forward-looking data on the economic calendar this week, at the IG Client Sentiment page on the DailyFX website, and at the IG Client Sentiment reports that accompany it.
