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

Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 66.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.94 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 7.4% higher than yesterday and 2.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.8% lower than yesterday and 26.9% higher 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. Positioning is more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Spot Gold trading bias.
