Euro Positioning Shifts Suggest Bullish Bias in Near-term

Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide and real-time data.

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 33.3% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.0 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-short since Apr 18 when EURUSD traded near 1.08475; price has moved 10.4% higher since then. The number of traders net-long is 3.5% higher than yesterday and 8.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.3% higher than yesterday and 1.4% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests EURUSD prices may continue to rise. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger EURUSD-bullish contrarian trading bias.

USD/JPY May Continue Higher as Net-Long Positioning Falls

Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide and real-time data.

USDJPY: Retail trader data shows 56.6% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.3 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jul 18 when USDJPY traded near 114.004; price has moved 2.3% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 3.1% lower than yesterday and 19.0% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 6.4% higher than yesterday and 7.0% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USDJPY prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current USDJPY price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
