Despite the strong lead from US markets, and sound economic data out of China, the Aussie 200 has been under pressure today. This has come as a surprise to many, including the majority of CMC’s top traders. Our Client Sentiment Indicator shows that at 9am AEDT this morning 62% of our top clients were bought, and the combined value of their trades equated to 72% of the total open positions within this instrument. However, today’s selling has not deterred the bulls. In fact, it has encouraged them. Long sentiment has increased throughout the day. Currently 77% of our top clients are long, and the combined value of their trades now equates to 94% of the total open positions within this instrument.
