Market Positioning Data Show Retail Traders Long Silver and Gold | Webinar
Market sentiment analysis:
- IG client sentiment data show that retail traders are overwhelmingly long both silver and gold, and that’s sending contrarian bearish signals for both precious metals
- More generally, the markets seem to be pausing for breath, with a firmer US Dollar sending most other currencies lower.

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.
