GBP/USD: Weekly Long Positions Decrease 20% Sparking Bullish Bias

Net-Long Positions Fall to a 4-month Low

GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 63.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.71 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Apr 20 when GBPUSD traded near 1.40768; price has moved 6.9% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 7.7% lower than yesterday and 20.6% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 15.7% higher than yesterday and 9.2% lower from last week.

Having trouble with your strategy? Here’s the #1 mistake that traders make.

GBPUSD Sentiment Suggest That Price Could Climb Higher

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests GBPUSD prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current GBPUSD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
