Gold Price In Limbo Traders Unload Positions
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 65.2% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.88 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 5.1% lower than yesterday and 5.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.1% lower than yesterday and 11.1% lower from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Spot Gold 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 Spot Gold trading bias.
