The COT Index is the difference between net speculative positioning and net commercial positioning measured. A light blue colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bullish) with speculators selling and commercials buying. A light red colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bearish) with speculators buying and commercials selling. Crosses above and below 0 are in bold. Non commercials tend to be on the wrong side at the turn and commercials the correct side. Use of the index is covered closely in detail in my book.

Non Commercials (speculators) – Red

Commercials – Blue

***

The latest developments in positioning warrant additional comments. As you review the charts, keep in mind that the COT Index (bottom line) moves with price and extreme levels tend to give way to at least a countertrend move. This week’s open (USD gap lower) underscores this point. Expect continued 2 way action into early June.
