Net-Long Positions 13% Higher Since Last Week

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 86.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 6.53 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.0% lower than yesterday and 13.1% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.8% higher than yesterday and 9.8% lower from last week.

Gold Sentiment Shifts Gives Mixed Bias

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.
