SSI: The Speculative Sentiment Index

The FXCM Speculative Sentiment Index provides an in-depth look at how retail FX traders are positioned and provides unique insight into market price moves and overall direction. Unlike major equities or futures markets, there is no single centralized exchange for forex trading. Such decentralized activity makes finding uniform volume or open interstest data impossible. DailyFX fills the gap by offering access to FXCM's proprietary volume and positioning information.

EURUSD – One-sided retail FX trader sentiment warns that the Euro may continue lower against the US Dollar. The majority of traders in our sample remain long the EUR/USD, and a contrarian view of trader sentiment leaves us firmly bearish.

Until we see a sustained shift towards selling, we see little reason to watch for a larger EUR/USD turn higher.
