EURO, EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, EUR/GBP, TECHNICAL ANALYSIS, RETAIL TRADER POSITIONING - TALKING POINTS

  • Retail traders are increasingly betting that the Euro may weaken ahead
  • Is this a sign that EUR/USD, EUR/JPY & EUR/GBP may climb instead?
  • What are key technical levels to watch for should net-short bets increase?
EUR/USD Price Forecast - Euro Breaks Down through 50 Day EMA

Glancing at IG Client Sentiment (IGCS), retail investors are increasingly betting that the Euro may weaken against the US Dollar, Japanese Yen and British Pound. As a result, net-long exposure in EUR/USD, EUR/JPY and EUR/GBP are on the decline. IGCS can often function as a contrarian indicator. If this trend in positioning continues, the Euro could advance in the coming days.

EUR/USD SENTIMENT OUTLOOK - BULLISH

The IGCS gauge shows that about 52% of retail traders are net-long EUR/USD. Since the majority of investors are net-long, this suggests prices may continue falling. However, downside exposure has increased by 19.71% and 40.87% compared to yesterday and last week respectively. The combination of overall and recent changes in positioning hint that prices may reverse higher.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

EUR/USD continues to consolidate within the boundaries of an Ascending Triangle chart formation. The direction of the breakout could hint at the coming trend. For now, a falling trendline from June is nearing. The latter could reinstate the dominant downtrend since last year. Otherwise, taking out the trendline exposes the 1.1525 inflection point. Closing under triangle support exposes the 1.1169 – 1.1195 range.

EUR/JPY SENTIMENT OUTLOOK - BULLISH

The IGCS gauge shows that roughly 30% of retail traders are net-long EUR/JPY. Since the majority of investors are net-short, this suggests prices may continue rising. This is as downside exposure increased by 23.28% and 22.22% compared to yesterday and last week respectively. With that in mind, the combination of overall and recent changes in positioning offers a bullish-contrarian trading bias.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Despite recent consolidation, EUR/JPY remains in a near-term uptrend since December. Zooming further out, the pair has been ranging since May 2021. Clearing immediate resistance, which appears to be the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 131.471, exposes the 78.6% level at 132.638. Turning lower places the focus on the 20-day Simple Moving Average, which may reinstate the uptrend.

EUR/GBP SENTIMENT OUTLOOK - BULLISH

The IGCS gauge shows that about 76% of retail traders are net-long EUR/GBP. Since the majority of investors are still biased to the upside, this could hint at further losses. However, downside exposure has increased by 20.27% and 40.53% compared to yesterday and last week respectively. With that in mind, the combination of overall and recent changes in positioning hint EUR/GBP may climb from here.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Following persistent losses since September 2020, EUR/GBP has now finally declined to the upper boundary of the 0.8282 – 0.8339 support zone. This range is made up of lows achieved in 2020. As such, the pair may bounce off this zone, placing the focus on the 38.2% Fibonacci extension at 0.8430. On the other hand, clearing the support zone exposes the 61.8% extension at 0.8251.

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
