IG CLIENT POSITIONING

The Net-Long Position is 33% lower than last week

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 48.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.08 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 12.3% lower than yesterday and 32.7% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 4.5% lower than yesterday and 24.2% higher from last week.

To gain more insight to how we use sentiment to power our trading, join us for our weekly Trading Sentiment webinar.

EUR/USD Sentiment Suggests a Bullish Bias

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.

Having trouble developing your strategy? Here’s the #1 mistake that traders make.
