DailyFX.com - Euro Positions at Record, Further Losses Seem Likely

Receive the Weekly Speculative Sentiment Index report via PDF via David’s e-mail distribution list.

EURUSD – The Euro trades at fresh year-to-date lows versus the US Dollar, and one-sided sentiment warns of continued EURUSD weakness.

Trade Implications – EURUSD: Our proprietary retail FX positioning data shows traders are their most long the Euro versus the US Dollar on record, and when everyone buys we typically look to sell. This factor in itself keeps us looking for further EUR losses.

The important caveat is that these sentiment extremes can often coincide with significant turning points. There’s no way to know when/if we’re at THE low, however, and until we see a significant shift in sentiment we’ll keep in favor of continued EURUSD declines. Key support comes in at November lows of $1.33, and a breakdown leaves little in the way of a move towards September’s trough near $1.31.
