COT position map :
we can see an interesting view from this report
The report is divided into several groups, and what is interesting is that you can see that the price of the pound from the low level of 2016 to the present is accompanied by several contradictions that are not usually seen in the foreign exchange markets and especially in the positions report
The holding of executive bodies is rising on the property over the last year – similar behavior was in March 2017 – suggesting that the pound will strengthen further against the dollar
On the other hand, the holdings of dealers (net positions) are only decreasing, which is not usually consistent with the distribution of positions, because there is always a certain balance between the two What language does not exist!
A strong player (not talking about a dealer but on a large body of course) can move the market here more easily because there is no strong second party which is very interesting
In summary, according to the picture shown, the long-term scenario for the pound is much larger right now than short, but it is enough for a big body to decide to enter a large short position to change the picture
