Weekly Summary of Forex Trader Sentiment and Changes in Positioning

ssi_table_story_body_Picture_5.png, US Dollar Breakdown Looks Like the Real DealThe US Dollar has broken substantial lows versus the Euro and nears major price support versus the Japanese Yen and others. Why do we think it breaks lower?

Our Retail FX sentiment-based strategies have sold into USD weakness as crowds buy into the breakdown, and indeed broad outlook leaves us in favor of continued weakness.

The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index—a measure of US Dollar’s value versus the Euro, British Pound, Japanese Yen, and Australian Dollar—has broken convincingly below its 200-day Simple Moving Average.

Given the breakdown and a sharp shift in crowd sentiment, we see little choice but to remain in favor of continued USD weakness. Follow any future updates on retail positioning via this author’s e-mail distribution list.
