AUD/USD, NZD/USD, S&P 500, Trader Positioning - Talking Points

In financial markets, currencies like the growth-linked Australian and New Zealand Dollars recently achieved upside breakouts along with cautious gains in the S&P 500. In this week’s session on IG Client Sentiment (IGCS), I break down these movements. IGCS is typically viewed as a contrarian indicator. For a further in-depth analysis that branches into fundamental discussion, check out the recording of the session above.

AUD/USD Sentiment Outlook - Bearish

The IGCS gauge implies that 28.90% of retail investors are net long AUD/USD. Upside exposure in this pair has decreased by 10.36% and 10.60% over a daily and weekly basis respectively. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes offers a stronger bullish contrarian trading bias. From a psychological standpoint, this could speak to a rising share of traders who perceive the price as too expensive.

AUD/USD, NZD/USD, S&P 500 Breakouts Analyzed: Where to Next?

Australian Dollar Technical Analysis

AUD/USD surged past the key resistance range between 0.7015 – 0.7064, setting course to retest highs from 2019. This is arguably the most meaningful upside progress since early June as prices spent most of the past few weeks consolidating. Negative RSI divergence does show that upside momentum is fading, and that can at times precede a turn lower. In that event, keep an eye on the 20-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA) for support.

NZD/USD Sentiment Outlook - Bearish

The IGCS gauge implies that 43.45% of retail investors are net long NZD/USD. Upside exposure has increased by 16.24% and 19.82% over a daily and weekly basis respectively. Traders are also less net-short over the same periods. With that in mind, recent changes in sentiment warn that the current price trend may soon reverse lower.

AUD/USD, NZD/USD, S&P 500 Breakouts Analyzed: Where to Next?

New Zealand Dollar Technical Analysis

NZD/USD surged past the key resistance range between 0.6551 – 0.6585, pausing its rise on the 23.6% Fibonacci extension at 0.6644. This has exposed the December 31st high at 0.6756. Much like with AUD/USD, negative RSI divergence is present here which may precede a turn lower. If prices do retreat, the 20-day SMA sits below and may keep losses at bay.

S&P 500 Sentiment Outlook - Bearish

The IG Client Sentiment (IGCS) implies that 27.99% of retail traders are net long the S&P 500. Net short bets have decreased by 9.63% and 2.30% over a daily and weekly basis respectively. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain netshort.

S&P 500 Technical Analysis

S&P 500 futures recently took out highs from June, exposing the all-time peak at 3397. Tuesday’s candle does fit the parameters of a Shooting Star candlestick, a sign of indecision. A further upside close could invalidate it. Negative RSI divergence shows fading upside momentum. A turn lower places the focus on near term rising support from late June – red line on the daily chart below.
