GBPJPY - Retail FX traders remain short the British Pound versus the Japanese Yen, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us in favor of GBPJPY gains.
Trade Implications - GBPJPY:Our sample shows that traders most recently turned short GBP as it traded above ¥174 and relatively brief exceptions have remained short since then. Current positioning shows approximation 60 percent of open positions are short as the pair consolidates in a narrow price range. Sentiment favors a GBPJPY break higher as long as crowds continue to sell.
