IG Client Sentiment Data Mixed


Silver:Retail trader data shows 82.65% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 4.76 to 1.

The number of traders net-long is 1.36% higher than yesterday and 3.23% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.95% higher than yesterday and 14.67% lower from last week.
