EUR/USD SENTIMENT REMAINS BEARISH
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggesting EURUSD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EURUSD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
