EURUSD: Reversal May Help Euro Climb Above 1.186
54% of Euro Traders Are Net-Long
EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 54.2% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.18 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Apr 30 when EURUSD traded near 1.21208; price has moved 2.1% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.2% lower than yesterday and 5.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.7% lower than yesterday and 1.0% lower from last week.
EURUSD Trades with Bullish Bias
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EURUSD prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current EURUSD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
