Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide.
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 65.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.86 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.7% lower than yesterday and 16.4% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.3% lower than yesterday and 19.9% higher from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Spot Gold prices may continue to fall. Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Spot Gold price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
