Gold Price Slightly More Bearish Based on this
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 69.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.3 to 1. The percentage of traders net-long is now its highest since Apr 09 when it traded near 1254.28. The number of traders net-long is 4.1% higher than yesterday and 2.8% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.7% lower than yesterday and 19.8% 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.
