Australian Dollar Mixed on Key Shift in Sentiment
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 49.4% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.03 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 7.4% lower than yesterday and 23.3% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.8% lower than yesterday and 9.8% higher from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUDUSD prices may continue to rise. Positioning is more net-short than yesterday but less net-short from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed AUDUSD trading bias.
