Retail forex traders remain heavily long the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) against the Euro and most major counterparts—providing consistent contrarian signal that the USD may hit further lows. Indeed, the Euro now trades at 8-month highs as there are nearly 3 retail traders short for every one that is long.
Our SSI-based trading strategies recently closed their EURUSD-long positions out at a gain, and consistent crowd sentiment leaves is in favor of further EURUSD strength.
