GBPUSD: RECENT SUGGESTS 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.Though traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week, these changes are relatively small. As a result, the current sentiment suggests a bearish trading bias.
