Gold Price Mixed as Net Short Increases by 23%
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 3.45 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.1% lower than yesterday and 1.1% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 23.3% higher than yesterday and 17.3% 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. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Spot Gold trading bias.
