Sentiment Suggests USD/JPY May Continue Higher Soon

Sentiment Suggests USD/JPY May Continue Higher Soon

Sentiment Suggests USD/JPY May Continue Higher Soon

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

USDJPY: Retail trader data shows 52.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.09 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jul 18 when USDJPY traded near 113.122; price has moved 0.3% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.1% lower than yesterday and 0.5% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.6% higher than yesterday and 9.9% 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.
