Euro Breakdown the Real Deal as Dollar Surges, Crowds Sell

David Rodriguez

Forex crowds have bought aggressively into Euro and British Pound weakness against the US Dollar. Our strategies continue to sell, and we see scope for further Dollar strength.

View individual currency sections:

EURUSD - Euro Breakdown is the Real Deal

GBPUSD - British Pound Forecast to Depreciate Further

USDJPY - Japanese Yen Sentiment Flat, Turnaround Risk Grows

XAUUSD - Gold Prices Forecast to Weaken Towards 1530

USDCHF - USDCHF Breaks Resistance, Sentiment Favors Gains

AUDUSD - We Like Selling Australian Dollar Bounces

Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

Our proprietary sentiment-based trading strategies have continued selling the Euro, British Pound, Australian Dollar, and Swiss Franc versus the resurgent US Dollar. Clearly one-sided retail crowd sentiment leaves us in favor of further USD gains.

A sharp jump in forex market volatility likewise suggests that our trend-following and breakout-friendly trading strategies can continue to do well as they go against crowd positioning. The Greenback looks well-positioned to continue higher against all except arguably the Japanese Yen.
