Technical vs Fundamental Analysis in Forex

The US dollar has lost around 10% of its value against the Japanese Yen in the last two months and is now probing a fresh multi-month low.

Retail trader data show 43.04% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.32 to 1.The number of traders net-long is 6.02% higher than yesterday and 6.30% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 7.23% lower than yesterday and 4.20% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests that USD/JPY prices may continue to rise. Positioning is less net-short than yesterday but more net-short from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed USD/JPY trading bias.
