EURUSDRetail forex traders continue buying into Euro weakness against the US Dollar, and this acts as contrarian signal that the pair may continue lower.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Last week we highlighted that forex traders were previously their most net-short EURUSD on record, which gave us a cautiously bullish contrarian bias. Yet the potential for a sentiment was real; crowds are often on the ‘right’ side of the trade at major tops/bottoms.

Total retail long positions are up a substantial 60 percent in the past 30 days, and the sharp swing helps confirm that the EURUSD may have set an important top. Our purely sentiment-based Momentum2strategy most recently sold from $1.3685 and $1.3582 as crowds buy. And indeed our Senior Currency Strategist updates key support and potential price targets to the downside.
