Why and how do we use the SSI in trading? View our video and download the free trading guide here

AUDUSD - The ratio of long to short positions in the AUDUSD stands at 1.25 as 56% of traders are long. Yesterday the ratio was 1.33; 57% of open positions were long. Long positions are 1.9% lower than yesterday and 9.3% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 4.4% higher than yesterday and 2.8% above levels seen last week. Open interest is 0.8% higher than yesterday and 2.1% below its monthly average.

We use our SSI as a contrarian indicator to price action, and the fact that the majority of traders are long gives signal that the AUDUSD may continue lower. The trading crowd has grown less net-long from yesterday and last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives a further mixed trading bias.
