USD/CAD: Retail trader data shows that 31.29% of traders are net-long and the ratio of traders short to long is 2.20 to 1. Our data shows that traders are now on their shortest net-long USD/CAD since June 21, when USD/CAD was trading near 1.29. The number of net-long traders is 13.67% lower than yesterday and 15.79% lower than last week, while the number of net-short traders is 43.21% higher than yesterday and 5.40% up from last week.
We generally take the opposite view of crowd sentiment, and the fact that traders are pure-short suggests that USD/CAD prices may continue to rise.
Traders are more pure than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a strong USD/CAD-Bullish opposite trading bias.
