Net-Short Positions Up 13% Over Last Week

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 84.2% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 5.31 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.7% higher than yesterday and 10.3% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.3% higher than yesterday and 13.4% higher from last week.

Gold Net-Short Hike Signals Bullish 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. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Spot Gold price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
