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

AUDUSD: Retail trader data shows 44.2% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.26 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 5.1% lower than yesterday and 1.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 5.4% higher than yesterday and 8.0% higher from last week.

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