Retail Sentiment

The forex retail sentiment data allows us to get an idea for what market sentiment in major currency pairs is among a predominantly retail crowd.

What is Retail Sentiment?

Retail sentiment is a measurement of long and short positions in a certain market by the retail crowd. A retail investor is any kind of investor that is not an institution, insider or entity other than an individual. Oftentimes, retail sentiment is inversely correlated to what big money is doing. If retail positions are majority long a certain asset, this indicates a bearish signal, because it usually means that institutions are majority short. The same concept applies for when retail is majority short; institutions are likely long sending a bullish signal.
