GBPUSD - An important week-over-week shift in British Pound retail positioning warns that the GBPUSD uptrend is at risk. Last week there were more than 2 traders short GBPUSD for every one long, and indeed crowds have remained net-short GBP as the pair crossed above $1.57 in early August. Yet short interest has fallen nearly 22 percent since last week, while longs have surged 43 percent.

If crowds indeed turn net-long GBPUSD, we would take that as clear contrarian signal for further losses. Important technical price levels to watch are at $1.59 and $1.6050.
