Crowd Heeds Notice, Reducing Euro Exposure Ahead of Brexit Vote Results
EURUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the EURUSD stands at -1.33 as 43% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was -1.22; 45% of open positions were long. Long positions are 15.1% lower than yesterday and 38.5% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 8.0% lower than yesterday and 11.0% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 11.2% lower than yesterday and 30.6% below its monthly average. We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are short gives signal that the EURUSD may continue higher. The trading crowd has grown further net-short from yesterday but unchanged since last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further bullish trading bias.
