See a video on why we use the Speculative Sentiment Index as a contrarian indicator in our trading

AUDUSD Retail traders remain net-long the Australian Dollar and have remained so since the pair crossed below the $0.80 mark in May. As long as that remains the case we see little reason to shift from our long-standing contrarian bearish trading bias. Yet it’s worth noting that total long interest has recently fallen to its lowest in over a month.

Suffice it to say it will be important to watch the next moves in the AUD and relative moves in sentiment. We will otherwise remain cautiously bearish until further notice.
