The number of traders net-long is 11.96% lower than yesterday and 10.88% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 14.17% higher than yesterday and 3.98% higher from last week.We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EUR/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 EUR/USD-bullish contrarian trading bias
