Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 73.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.7 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.7% higher than yesterday and 12.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.6% lower than yesterday and 22.8% 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. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger Spot Gold-bearish contrarian trading bias.
