SPX500 – Retail CFD speculators remain short the S&P 500 (SPX500) after nearly flipping net-long during the recent selloff, but even a -6% move in two weeks could shake positioning.
Trade Implications SPX500 – The SPX500 tracks the fair value of the S&P 500 futures price, and a look at the chart above shows that traders had remained consistently net-short the contract since it traded near 1400. Falling long interest alongside rising short interest gives bias for a continued move higher. A break of 1850, the yearly high, if the SSI ratio remains negative, would give priority to a breakout with potential to be fueled by shorts covering their positions.
