Gold Sentiment Suggest that Prices Might Rise

Net-Longs Decrease 9% Over the Past Week

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 80.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 4.01 to 1. The percentage of traders net-long is now its lowest since Nov 05 when it traded near 1230.99. The number of traders net-long is 7.3% lower than yesterday and 9.0% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.1% higher than yesterday and 3.0% lower 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.
