Major Shift Points to Further Euro Losses

EURUSDRetail FX traders have taken profit aggressively into the Euro’s recent slide, and crowds are now their least short EURUSD since it bottomed near $1.35 in early February.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: We’ve remained steadily in favor of going against the crowd and buying into Euro strength. Yet the substantial weekly swing warns that the pair may have set an important short-term top and could trade lower.

Our purely sentiment-based Momentum2 strategy has now sold from $1.3842, while our Senior Strategist writes that the turn lower leaves the near-term trend bias to the downside. We’re wary of over-committing to the turn given forex volatility near record lows, but we thus far see evidence of a material shift in sentiment and potentially price.
