Euro May Rise As Sentiment Shifts

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 37.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.66 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.7% lower than yesterday and 20.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 9.1% higher than yesterday and 7.0% 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.
