yes, the majority are always looking for major reversals and usually get it wrong while the rest just look for minor reversals as in buying the pullback (dip) to catch the trend.

Sometimes the punters are right, so don't rely on this thing-a-ma-jiggit exclusively 🤔

Hi - I would take the Sentiment readings with a pinch of salt - it would be better if a quick survey was taken when placing positions as 95% of those trades/position could be trading short-term intraday directional trades

If one of my methods shows up on a chart I trade it, regardless of sentiment readings

Totally agree.  Provision of sentiment data is purely a marketing tool.  Brokers make money through activity, so anything which encourages placing of bets / trades is good from their perspective.

Dailyfx that provides the sentiment indicator with the IG client positioning has always promoted it as a contrarian indicator and have done a lot of research and data collection over the years to back up that view.  They did have it all published on their web site and presume it's still there if anyone wants to look.

Their bullish/bearish recommendations are all over the place though.  They were advocating going short EUR/USD just two or three days ago despite most clients being short, and now look at what's happened to it.

yes they did try to develop it into something more than just a 'do the opposite' indicator and that's what a lot of the data research over the years went into but I never looked at the detail myself and not sure how that part is supposed to work.

Too right Caseynotes....

Trends are your friend......stick long when you wrote this and you would be up!

Bet you would still be long and up end of this week?

I tend to stick to short term trades so if the daily candle is green and price is above the daily pivot I would be looking for longs, if the opposite would look for shorts.

    • Most Asian stock indices were little changed on Monday following gains in European and US markets last week as investors are refocusing their minds on interest rates with the US Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to hike its rates by 25 basis points and the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BoE) by 50 basis points this week. Major global stock indices are expected to end January higher amid slowing inflation, weakening economic data and mixed corporate earnings in the US which point towards a slower pace of central bank policy tightening. After slow start with German preliminary GDP and Spanish CPI data on Monday, US corporate giants such as Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta Platforms and Exxon Mobil are expected to report earnings later this week.
