Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.

USDJPY: Retail trader data shows 67.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.03 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jan 09 when USDJPY traded near 116.998; price has moved 3.3% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 4.1% higher than yesterday and 13.2% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.2% higher than yesterday and 28.1% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USDJPY prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger USDJPY-bearish contrarian trading bias.
