Australian Dollar Mixed Based on Sentiment
AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 51.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.07 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Oct 24 when AUDUSD traded near 0.77751; price has moved 0.7% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 8.2% lower than yesterday and 6.6% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.2% lower than yesterday and 6.8% 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. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed AUDUSD trading bias.
