GBPJPY–Heavily one-sided retail FX trader sentiment suggests that the British Pound may continue to rally versus the recently-downtrodden Japanese Yen. Our trader sample shows that 61 percent of open positions are currently short the GBP/JPY; a contrarian view of crowd sentiment gives us a bullish short-term trading bias. And indeed, ‘the crowd’ turned net-short GBP/JPY as it traded above ¥185 through early October.

Until we see a substantive shift in positioning, we’ll continue to favor buying into GBP/JPY gains.
