Euro Likely Set Important Bottom Against US Dollar

Euro Likely Set Important Bottom Against US Dollar

Forex trading crowds are now their most short the Euro against the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) since the pair traded towards $1.42, giving contrarian signal that the EURUSD may have set an important bottom and could trade higher.

The total number of traders short the Euro/US Dollar has now risen to its highest since October 25, at which point the EURUSD was well on its way to trading towards $1.42. Given such one-sided sentiment, we expect that the EURUSD could continue trading higher and may have set an important bottom.

The obvious caveat to this analysis is the fact that the Euro is already more than 300 pips off of its lows. We may have already seen the bulk of the sharp reversal, in which case the pace of gains could slow and limit the appeal of fresh long positions.
