Gold Prices Forecast to Continue Lower

Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 77.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.44 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.2% lower than yesterday and 1.1% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.6% lower than yesterday and 21.7% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Spot Gold prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger Spot Gold-bearish contrarian trading bias.
