Net-Long Traders Remain Above 70%
GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 71.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.45 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Apr 20 when GBPUSD traded near 1.42353; price has moved 5.8% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 1.6% lower than yesterday and 5.1% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.4% lower than yesterday and 5.2% lower from last week.
GBPUSD Continues to Trade With Mixed Bias
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests GBPUSD prices may continue to fall. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed GBPUSD trading bias.
