Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 52.7% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.12 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 12.7% higher than yesterday and 4.4% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 7.5% lower than yesterday and 10.1% lower from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests AUDUSD 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 AUDUSD- bearish contrarian trading bias .
