Substantial shifts in trading crowd sentiment warn that the US Dollar may have set an important bottom against the Euro, Canadian Dollar, and British Pound through very recent trade.

Retail trading crowds remained net-long the USD versus the Euro since early January and against the Canadian Dollar since September, 2010. The fact that crowds have recently turned net-short the US currency against these counterparts underlines the potentially pivotal shift in sentiment and warns that the US Dollar could continue higher through the near term.

We likewise see strong evidence of a potential US Dollar bottom via FX options and futures positioning/sentiment. It is always extraordinarily difficult to time a top or a bottom following an extended trend in any currency, but recent evidence suggests that the Greenback may have set an important short or medium-term bottom against major counterparts.
