Net-Long Gold Positions Fall by 13% Since Last Week
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 71.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.45 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 6.2% lower than yesterday and 13.1% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.4% lower than yesterday and 1.6% higher 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 more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Spot Gold trading bias.
