Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

ssi_table_story_body_Picture_5.png, Sharp US Dollar Reversal Looks like the Start of a Larger Rally

The US Dollar may have set a lasting bottom versus the Euro, Australian Dollar, and British Pound. Why? And what could invalidate?

It’s a fool’s errand to try and catch major turning points in price, and saying that it “feels like” a reversal is a sure-fire way to lose money over the long run. Yet our retail FX sentiment-based strategies have begun buying into the USD bounce as we see early signal of a potential turn.

Past performance is NOT indicative of future results, but our Momentum2 trading system has done well trading the Greenback through recent months of trading. The fact that it has now sold EURUSD, GBPUSD, and AUDUSD serves as early confirmation of a potentially lasting Dollar bounce.
