AUD/USD Weakness Ahead, Sentiment Shifts Warn

AUD/USD Weakness Ahead, Sentiment Shifts Warn

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide and real-time data.

AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 46.8% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.14 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Jun 04 when AUDUSD traded near 0.74145; price has moved 5.7% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 8.5% higher than yesterday and 11.2% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 13.5% lower than yesterday and 20.2% lower 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. Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUDUSD price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.
