FTSE 100: Retail trader data shows 50.26% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.01 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Nov 10 when FTSE 100 traded near 6,275.20, price has moved 1.16% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 22.19% higher than yesterday and 15.38% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 3.28% lower than yesterday and 2.05% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests FTSE 100 prices may continue to fall.

Our data shows traders are now net-long FTSE 100 for the first time since Nov 10, 2020 09:00 GMT when FTSE 100 traded near 6,275.20.
