Gold Price Mixed Based on this
Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 79.8% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.96 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 21.0% lower than yesterday and 13.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 16.9% higher than yesterday and 17.9% 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.
