Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

ssi_table_story_body_Picture_17.png, US Dollar Setting up for Major Reversal - Here's What Could Confirm

The US Dollar trades at major lows across the board, and extremely one-sided retail forex sentiment warns of a potential extreme in both price and positioning. Or in other words: the USD could bottom near here.

The key term is “could”, and we need to protect against getting blindly long without concrete signs of reversal. Indeed we’ll be watching retail trader sentiment very closely for early signs of reversal.

Potential reward is significant on US Dollar long positions, but we’ll avoid taking outsized risk absent evidence of a major turnaround.
