Little Change Leaves Euro Set for Reversal
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 40.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.49 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Apr 18 when EURUSD traded near 1.06042; price has moved 2.5% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 11.1% higher than yesterday and 11.7% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.9% higher than yesterday and 1.6% lower 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. Yet traders are less net-short than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current EURUSD price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.
