It's true, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission demands Commercial Hedgers report their positions. The CFTC then compiles a weekly report that is provided to the public... and best of all - It's Completely FREE!
Don't take my word for it though, go to the CFTC's website now to see for yourself.
Now that you know the reported positions of the largest, most well informed traders (Commercial Hedgers) exists, what are you going to do with it? This is the same question I asked myself in 1994 when I first learned of it. Quite frankly I was trading the Commitments of Traders data for 5 years before I learned the most effective way to use the data. It wasn't until I built my own COT database that I discovered a way that clearly spells out trade set-ups that precede the Biggest Commodity Moves of the YEAR!!
After Hundreds of hours of research, I made a very simple discovery - I'll share this discovery with all who subscribe to my weekly COT Update!
Before research could begin I had to make sense of the CFTC's cumbersome Commitments of Traders Report. The obvious solution was to create a COT database to allow me to study the COT's positions as they came in week after week. This wasn't an easy task nor was it a cheap one. To see what I had to deal with, take a look at the Weekly COT Report issued by the CFTC. My goal was to create a Historical COT database that could be systematically updated each and every week.
Now that the COT database was created I could run as many studies as necessary without having to worry about the data getting outdated. Well that's exactly what I did until one day it hit me!
By this time I had already spent hundreds of hours analyzing the COT database but nothing had come close to this one simple idea.
Even before this revelation which I call the COT Trend Indicator, the COT net traders position proved to be the most valuable tool I had ever seen to predict Commodity Futures movements. The "net position" is a simple calculation but a powerful indicator. Just take the total long positions of all the reporting commercial traders and subtract the total short positions of all the reporting commercials, and there you have it - Commercials Net Position.
If the net position number is positive, then the commercials are "net long". If the net position number is negative, then the commercials are "net short".
Take a look at the British Pound chart below. The bottom panel of the chart displays the commercial net position.
By its self, the commercials net position works relatively well identifying major tops and bottoms. Just before the Pound moves up you can see the Commercials build on their long positions until the market starts moving in their direction. The same is true for the down legs as well.
As you can see from the above chart, the commercials net position is flashing a major sell set-up in the British pound. The commercials are collectively short more contracts than in the last 4 years. Only twice in the last 4 years have the commercials been so "net short". But wait... don't short the Pound just yet, the set-up is just one step in the COT Trend Trader™ Method.
I don't mean to downplay the usefulness
In fact, until my discovery of the COT Trend Indicator, I had never seen another "Trading Indicator" that worked as well as what's displayed above. Now I have an even better way to use the COT data to identify Major Commodity Turning Points!
That's exactly what I want to share with you! Actually there's 3 things I'm offering You:
