GBPUSD – Forex trading crowds have turned aggressively short the British Pound against the US Dollar since it traded above $1.5400, giving us consistent contrarian signal that the GBPUSD may in fact continue onto fresh highs.

Our SSI ratio of long to short positions in the GBPUSD stands at -2.37 as nearly 70% of traders are short. It is worth noting that short interest is down an important 38% since last week, while long interest fell a lesser 11% through the same stretch. The significant week-over-week slowdown in selling warns that the pace of gains may slow.

Yet trading crowds remain aggressively net-short, and we see few signs of imminent reversal. Our bias remains bullish until further notice.
