Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 30.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.32 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 12.7% lower than yesterday and 26.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 4.6% higher than yesterday and 15.0% higher from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EURUSD prices may continue to rise. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EURUSD-bullish contrarian trading bias.
