Why and how do we use IG Client Sentiment in trading? See our guide and real-time data.
Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 73.8% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.82 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.5% higher than yesterday and 6.8% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 7.4% lower than yesterday and 20.0% lower from last week.
We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Spot Gold prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger Spot Gold-bearish contrarian trading bias.
