Forex trading crowds have aggressively sold into overnight US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) strength against the Euro and other major currencies, and the shift in sentiment suggests the EURUSD may have topped at $1.2440.

Timing major currency turnarounds is always especially difficult, but a recent shift towards retail crowd EURUSD buying gives us contrarian signal that the Euro may trade towards fresh lows. Retail sentiment likewise points to a potentially significant reversal for the USDJPY as it set a short-term bottom at ¥77.90.

Our retail sentiment-based forex trading strategies are currently flat, but said systems could soon go long US Dollars across the board as they go against the most recent turn in crowd sentiment.
