Recent Flip in Sentiment Provides Little Clarity for the Australian Dollar
Why and how do we use the SSI in trading? View our video and download the free indicator here.
AUDUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the AUDUSD stands at -1.14 as 47% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was -1.17; 46% of open positions were long. Long positions are 2.3% higher than yesterday and 6.1% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 0.3% lower than yesterday and 4.5% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 0.9% higher than yesterday and 11.4% 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 but further short since last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
