USD/JPY: Net-Short Positions Up 18.9% Since Yesterday

USD/JPY: Net-Short Positions Up 18.9% Since Yesterday

Abdullah Alamoudi, Contributor
USDJPY

52% Of Traders Are Net-Long

USDJPY: Retail trader data shows 52.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.08 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since May 23 when USDJPY traded near 109.258; price has moved 0.5% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 2.3% lower than yesterday and 7.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 18.9% higher than yesterday and 6.8% higher from last week.

USDJPY Trades With Mixed Bias

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USDJPY prices may continue to fall. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed USDJPY trading bias.
