Why and how do we use the SSI in trading? View our video and download the free indicator here

USDJPYThe ratio of long to short positions in the USDJPY stands at 1.27 as 56% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 1.42; 59% of open positions were long. Long positions are 1.0% higher than yesterday and 1.6% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 12.3% higher than yesterday and 13.2% above levels seen last week.

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.
