XAUUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the XAUUSD stands at 1.84 as 65% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 1.97; 66% of open positions were long. Long positions are 3.8% lower than yesterday and 12.3% above levels seen last week. Short positions are 2.7% higher than yesterday and 7.2% below levels seen last week. Open interest is 1.6% lower than yesterday and 7.6% below its monthly average.

We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are long gives signal that the XAUUSD may continue lower. The trading crowd has grown less net-long from yesterday but further long since last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
