From a daily perspective, EURUSD has broken below the significant level of 1.1000. This suggests the potential for a continuation of the downward movement, especially considering that the European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to adopt a more passive approach in September. The euro has lost a substantial portion of its bullish conviction, particularly when compared to the faltering economy that pales in comparison to that of the United States.
From a technical standpoint, we observe the prices continuing to push down towards 1.0800. Additionally, according to a research paper from ANZ and Bank of America, they also hold a bearish view on EURUSD. Their forecast for EURUSD in three months’ time is around 1.0500.

The DXM, or “Dump Money Index,” is a valuable tool for traders who want to understand the sentiment of retail participants. The DXM measures the percentage of retail traders who are holding long positions in a particular market.

It is worth noting that 95% of retail traders lose money over extended trading periods. This data suggests that retail traders are often wrong about the direction of the market. Therefore, contrarian traders who take the opposite side of the market as retail traders may have a higher probability of success.
Of course, there is no guarantee of success with contrarian trading. However, it is a strategy that can be used to increase your chances of winning.
