SPX500Retail CFD speculators remain heavily short the SPX500 as the contract trades near all-time highs, and we favor buying into strength.


Trade Implications – Our retail sentiment data shows that the number of orders short SPX500 outnumber those long by a massive 6.7 to 1. This ratio is roughly unchanged from last week, and heavily one-sided retail positions leave us in favor of continued strength.
