USDJPY - The ratio of long to short positions in the USDJPY stands at 1.11 as 53% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 2.46; 71% of open positions were long. Long positions are 29.8% lower than yesterday and 33.2% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 56.4% higher than yesterday and 2.2% above levels seen last week. Open interest is 4.9% lower than yesterday and 24.5% 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.
