Using Trader Sentiment for Forex, Stocks & Commodities

Trader sentiment can be used to determine positioning across a range of assets. Our forex market sentiment indicator shows the percentage of traders going long and short, how sentiment is shifting, and whether the overall signal is bullish, bearish or mixed.

Sentiment may improve technical analysis and enable more consistent trading, particularly for those looking to trade against the consensus. Find out more with our guide to trading with IG client sentiment data, as well as how to approach sentiment analysis in forex trading
