What is the contrarian approach to Forex sentiment
The contrarian approach to Forex sentiment is when a trader would look to take a trade in the opposite direction of the majority traders in the market. Meaning, if the majority are selling an instrument, look for buy opportunities, and, similarly, if the majority are buying an instrument, look for sell opportunities.
The contrarian approach is the most used sentiment trading strategy.
We are always looking to take trades in the direction of the current trend, not trying to pick tops or bottoms. In other words, if the trend is bullish, and the sentiment is short, we're looking for buy opportunities; if the trend is bearish, and the sentiment is long, we're looking for sell opportunities.

- SourcesGood decisions need to be based on reliable data. Our forex sentiment data is generally representative and not just taken from one (or some) brokers.
