The significant shift in trader sentiment has been enough to force our sentiment-based forex trading strategies to go long the US Dollar and short the Japanese Yen across various counterparts.

Those USD-long positions line up well with our bullish forecasts for the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index, and indeed we believe Dollar longs remain attractive amidst the clear retail sentiment shift.
