AUDUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the AUDUSD stands at -1.03 as 49% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was -1.41; 42% of open positions were long. Long positions are 14.5% higher than yesterday and 6.8% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 15.8% lower than yesterday and 8.3% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 3.2% lower than yesterday and 5.0% below its monthly average. We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are short gives signal that the AUDUSD may continue higher. The trading crowd has grown less net-short from yesterday and last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
