Australian Dollar Bearish as Traders Go Long
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 60.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.5 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 14.3% higher than yesterday and 35.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.3% higher than yesterday and 19.2% lower from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests AUDUSD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger AUDUSD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
