Gold Price Set to Fall as Traders go Long
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 84.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 5.52 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.7% higher than yesterday and 15.4% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.5% lower than yesterday and 6.8% 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.
