Looking for a Good Price to Get Short Euro

EURUSDRetail FX crowds have continued to sell into Euro gains as it trades near year-to-date peaks, and exceedingly low volatility prices suggest that the EURUSD may fail to break higher.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Our proprietary sentiment data shows that over 70 percent of retail traders are currently short EURUSD. We most often use our SSI data as a contrarian indicator to price action; if everyone’s selling, we like buying. But the retail crowd is often ‘right’ at major turning points, and indeed our data shows that most retail traders do well in low-volatility environments.

We won’t make a habit of it, but we like joining the crowd in selling the EURUSD against the highs. From a price perspective, our Senior Technical Strategist writes that a EUR drop below $1.3370 could confirm a reversal.
