The ratio of long to short positions in the USDJPY stands at 1.89 as nearly 65% of traders are long. Yesterday, the ratio was at 1.96 as 66% of open positions were long. In detail, long positions are 1.5% lower than yesterday and 20.5% weaker since last week. Short positions are 1.8% higher than yesterday and an impressive 50.6% stronger since last week.
