Gold: 25% Jump in Overnight Short Positions Spark a Bullish Bias

Short Positions Hit a 2-month High

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 82.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 4.56 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.5% lower than yesterday and 2.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 25.0% higher than yesterday and 15.5% higher from last week.

Gold Sentiment Prompts a 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.
