GBPUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the GBPUSD stands at 2.45 as 71% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 1.81; 64% of open positions were long. Long positions are 14.5% higher than yesterday and 3.4% above levels seen last week. Short positions are 15.2% lower than yesterday and 33.8% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 3.9% higher than yesterday and 15.1% 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 further net-long from yesterday and last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further bearish trading bias.
