Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

ssi_table_story_body_Picture_12.png, USDJPY Surges Above ¥100, and We Like Buying

The USDJPY has surged above ¥100, and a substantial shift in crowd sentiment favors further gains. Yet the USD remains at risk versus the Euro and British Pound.

Our retail FX sentiment-based strategies have bought the US Dollar versus the Japanese Yen and Australian Dollar (long USDJPY and short AUDUSD) while selling it versus the Euro and British Pound (long EURUSD and GBPUSD). The admittedly mixed implications suggest some of the best trades might be in the cross rates.

Past performance is not indicative of future results, but our purely sentiment-based Momentum2 strategy has had an impressive run trading the EURAUD and select JPY cross rates.
