Retail Sentiment

Retail sentiment is helpful to traders as it provides valuable insights into the behavior and sentiment of individual investors, often serving as a contrarian signal that traders can use to gauge potential market reversals or momentum shifts.

What is Retail Sentiment?

Retail sentiment is a measurement of long and short positions in a certain market by the retail crowd. A retail investor is any kind of investor that is not an institution, insider or entity other than an individual. Oftentimes, retail sentiment is inversely correlated to what big money is doing. If retail positions are majority long a certain asset, this indicates a bearish signal, because it usually means that institutions are majority short. The same concept applies for when retail is majority short; institutions are likely long sending a bullish signal.
