Retail Positions

Total volume

Extreme positioning

The Percentage long parameter for each currency is calculated over the volume of all pairs containing the currency. For example, if it showed 30% for USD, it would mean that 30% of all lots traded were long USD indicating that retail traders are short USD overall.

The Price distance shows the distance of all open positions from the market price averaged over all pairs of the given currency.

X / max represents the value of X relative to the historic maximum of X. Therefore, values close to 1 are of interest.
