Australian Dollar Set to Fall on Bearish Bias
AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 53.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.16 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.7% lower than yesterday and 4.7% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 12.0% lower than yesterday and 13.0% 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.
