GBPUSD

NUMBER OF NET-LONG TRADERS ARE 12.9% HIGHER FROM LAST WEEK

GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 63.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.75 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 8.2% higher than yesterday and 21.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.7% higher than yesterday and 31.1% lower from last week.

GBPUSD: SENTIMENT CONTINUES TO SUGGEST A BEARISH TRADING BIAS

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests GBPUSD prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger GBPUSD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
