Recent Moves Confirm End to British Pound Downtrend

GBPUSD– Retail FX traders recently turned net-short the British Pound versus the US Dollar, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us in favor of buying into recent strength. Last week we warned that a substantive shift in trader positioning warned of a similarly significant change in trend. And indeed recent moves act as confirmation of the same.

Our data shows traders remained net-long GBP/USD as it fell from $1.53 to lows near $1.38, but as of this week we see the opposite as traders are short. Past performance is not indicative of future results, but we believe going against the crowd may work well as we watch for further Sterling strength.
