Yen Mixed with Less Short Positions

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

USDJPY: Retail trader data shows 56.3% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.29 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jan 09 when USDJPY traded near 117.616; price has moved 5.3% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 5.3% lower than yesterday and 37.5% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.5% lower than yesterday and 36.1% higher 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. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current USDJPY price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
