S&P 500 Continues to Rise After Reaching the Highest Level in 3 Months

S&P 500 Continues to Rise After Reaching the Highest Level in 3 Months

Abdullah Alamoudi, Contributor
S&P 500

Net-Short Positions Up By 15.8% Since Last Week

US 500: Retail trader data shows 39.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.53 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since May 03 when US 500 traded near 2644.0; price has moved 4.3% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.3% lower than yesterday and 7.7% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 11.8% higher than yesterday and 15.8% higher from last week.

Bullish Bias Remains in Play

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests US 500 prices may continue to rise. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger US 500-bullish contrarian trading bias
