An important turn in forex market trading conditions and similarly significant shift in retail trader sentiment leaves us in favor of short-term US Dollar weakness. How might we play it?

Past performance is not indicative of future results, but our retail sentiment-based Momentum2/”Tidal Shift” system has done especially well trading the British Pound/US Dollar pair through recent system in particular.

Said strategy is currently short GBPUSD from $1.5100 and has broadly bought into US Dollar strength. Yet it most recently went long AUDUSD from $0.9136, and indeed its next move is likely going short US Dollars across the board.
