EURUSD – Choppy price action has led to similarly directionless forex trader sentiment, and Euro/US Dollar positioning is mostly unchanged since last week. The fact that trading crowds have most recently bought into EURUSD declines gives us a modestly bearish bias.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Our SSI-based ‘Momentum2’ most recently bought the Euro only to be stopped out as the pair broke lower. Our sentiment-based trading strategies tend to do well in times of strong volatility and/or market trends, and we may need to see a EURUSD break above $1.3064 or below $1.2875 to see an acceleration in either direction.

Sentiment-Based Strategies Buy GBPUSD on Risk of Bounce

GBPUSD – Retail forex traders remain aggressively long the British Pound against the US Dollar, and our sentiment-based trading strategies have mostly sold into GBPUSD weakness.

Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Our trend-following Momentum2 strategy has most recently gone long the GBP from $1.4918 on an early sign of a trend shift. Yet we can’t wholeheartedly advocate such a position if retail crowds remain aggressively bullish; our SSI shows that there are currently more than two traders short for every long. There is noticeable risk of further GBPUSD bounces, but we’ll need to see a larger push higher before switching tack.
