EUR/USD: Prices May Rise As Weekly Long Positions Fall 19%

Net-Short Positions Decreased 15.5% This Week

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 44.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.27 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Aug 21 when EURUSD traded near 1.14371; price has moved 1.3% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 4.0% lower than yesterday and 19.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 4.2% higher than yesterday and 15.5% lower from last week.
