See a video on why we use the Speculative Sentiment Index as a contrarian indicator in our trading

GBPUSD – Retail forex traders remain aggressively long the British Pound versus the US Dollar, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us firmly in favor of selling into GBP/USD declines. Indeed, the total number of open retail long positions in our sample is at its highest in 10 months and net-positioning is its most extreme since the GBP traded to $1.46 in April.

Such aggressively one-sided sentiment leaves us with little reason to abandon our contrarian bias towards selling into British Pound weakness.
