Gold– Aggressively one-sided retail forex trader positions warn that Gold prices may continue to decline through near-term trading. Our data shows that there are currently 3.6 retail open short positions in XAU/USD for every one that is long; 78 percent of interest is short. This is the largest such extreme since the precious metal traded into important lows through July.

It’s certainly possible that such heavily one-sided interest warns of a near-term turnaround, but such reversals are only clear in hindsight. Until we see a substantive shift we’ll continue to call for XAU/USD declines.
