ssi_eur-usd_body_Picture_5.png, Forex Analysis: Trading Systems buy Euro versus US Dollar

EURUSD - Retail forex trading crowds remain heavily long the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) versus the Euro and other major counterparts, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment favors continued EURUSD gains.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: One of our sentiment-based trading strategies has most recently bought the Euro from $1.3323 with a trailing stop at the 24-hour low at approximately $1.3270.
