GoldA historic decline in Gold prices versus the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) has led to a similarly dramatic swing in crowd sentiment, and our overall preference remains to sell Gold bounces.

Trade Implications – Gold: Last week we wrote that it was not a time to catch falling knives as our retail positioning-based SSI warned of further gold price weakness. Retail long interest in XAUUSD has since fallen by a remarkable 37 percent while short interest has jumped 61 percent. There are currently only 1.3 traders long for every one short—down from 3.4:1 just 7 days ago.

The impressive swing in positioning warns that gold prices may have set a short-term bottom, but our technical gold forecast warns that bounces should be sold in anticipation of a major low.
