EUR/USD IG Client Sentiment

EUR/USD: Net-Long Positions Increase by 9.2% from Last Week

EUR/USD: Retail trader data shows 71.9% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.56 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jul 01 when EUR/USD traded near 1.13678; price has moved 2.0% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 8.7% higher than yesterday and 9.2% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 9.6% lower than yesterday and 15.3% lower from last week.

Current Sentiment Suggests Further Bearish Trading Bias

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EUR/USD 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 EUR/USD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
