ssi_gbp-usd_body_Picture_8.png, British Pound Rallies Offer Short Opportunities

GBPUSD – Retail FX traders remain long the British Pound against the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR), but recent GBPUSD consolidation has produced similarly sideways moves in crowd sentiment and positioning. Crowds remain near their most net-long GBPUSD since the pair last traded towards multi-year lows at $1.53. Yet long interest has fallen 19 percent since last week.

Trade Implications – GBPUSD: Our sentiment-based trading strategies have closed their British Pound short positions. They will once again sell if and when we see a build in crowd long positions and a break lower.
