Euro Outlook Turns Bearish on Key Sentiment Change

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

EURUSD: Retail trader data shows 54.6% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.2 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Apr 03 when EURUSD traded near 1.06707; price has moved 0.2% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 13.5% lower than yesterday and 17.5% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 22.6% higher than yesterday and 13.9% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EURUSD 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 EURUSD price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.

In fact, traders have remained net-long since Jan 09 when USDJPY traded near 117.525; price has moved 7.6% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 2.7% higher than yesterday and 8.3% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 7.6% higher than yesterday and 8.1% 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. 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 USDJPY trading bias.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests GBPUSD 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 GBPUSD-bullish contrarian trading bias.

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

US 500: Retail trader data shows 32.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 2.12 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 5.6% higher than yesterday and 38.8% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 11.1% higher than yesterday and 10.4% lower from last week. Traders are now near their least net-short US 500, which tracks the fair value of the S&P 500 futures price, since it traded near 2,135 in November, 2016.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests US 500 prices may continue to rise. Positioning is more net-short than yesterday but less net-short from last week. The recent shift warns the US 500 may be in the midst of a lasting turn lower.
