GBPUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the GBPUSD stands at 1.52 as 60% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 1.80; 64% of open positions were long. Long positions are 8.2% lower than yesterday and 22.6% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 8.8% higher than yesterday and 31.5% above levels seen last week. Open interest is 2.1% lower than yesterday and 5.0% below its monthly average.
We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are long gives signal that the GBPUSD may continue lower. The trading crowd has grown less net-long from yesterday and last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
