USD/JPY Bounce Ahead of Brexit Vote Results Sees Crowd Reduce Longs
USDJPY - The ratio of long to short positions in the USDJPY stands at 3.17 as 76% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 3.54; 78% of open positions were long. Long positions are 18.9% lower than yesterday and 27.2% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 9.2% lower than yesterday and 15.6% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 16.7% lower than yesterday and 17.1% below its monthly average. We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are long gives signal that the USDJPY may continue lower. The trading crowd has grown less net-long from yesterday and last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
