EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 26.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.77 to 1. The percentage of traders net-long is now its lowest since Nov 22 when EURUSD traded near 1.18143. The number of traders net-long is 18.7% lower than yesterday and 18.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 10.3% higher than yesterday and 13.2% 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.
