GBP/JPY: Retail trader data shows 49.62% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.02 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Feb 28 when GBP/JPY traded near 138.47, price has moved 6.50% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.28% lower than yesterday and 17.80% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 42.75% higher than yesterday and 55.12% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests GBP/JPY prices may continue to rise.
