On the morning of March 5, sentiment support and resistance using the 80/20 sentiment polarity ratio showed that the spot price was much closer to the sentiment resistance level than to the sentiment support level. This showed a bearish sentiment bias. It also was an indication that a short position was a lower risk option, as you could place a tighter stop based on support and resistance levels. The EUR/USD sell off that subsequently occurred confirmed that the bearish crowd was right.
Using weekly binary options to find sentiment polarity can be an effective tool to improve your trading. Every market is made up of traders, so any clue you can gain regarding the sentiment of other traders can only help your analysis.
