GBPUSD – Retail FX traders have sold into recent British Pound gains, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us focused on further GBP advances.

Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Last week we claimed that the British Pound looked at risk of declines as long as retail traders continued buying and the pair respected the post-Nonfarm Payrolls high at $1.6845. Yet our data shows that crowds have since turned to selling as short interest is up 17 percent on the week and longs fall by the same amount. A break above $1.6845 would further confirm that further gains are likely.
