Forex crowds have bought aggressively into Euro and British Pound weakness against the US Dollar. Our strategies continue to sell, and we see scope for further Dollar strength.

EURUSD - Euro Breakdown is the Real Deal

GBPUSD - British Pound Forecast to Depreciate Further

USDJPY - Japanese Yen Sentiment Flat, Turnaround Risk Grows

Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

Our proprietary sentiment-based trading strategies have continued selling the Euro, British Pound, Australian Dollar, and Swiss Franc versus the resurgent US Dollar. Clearly one-sided retail crowd sentiment leaves us in favor of further USD gains.

A sharp jump in forex market volatility likewise suggests that our trend-following and breakout-friendly trading strategies can continue to do well as they go against crowd positioning. The Greenback looks well-positioned to continue higher against all except arguably the Japanese Yen.
