Our data shows there are currently 1.5 open retail positions short XAU/USD for every 1 that is long, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us plainly in favor of buying into gains. The severity with which Gold prices have surged through major multi-month highs acts as further confirmation that this move is the ‘real deal’.
We would need to see a substantive shift in retail forex positioning to call for a meaningful XAU/USD reversal.
