The COT Index is the difference between net speculative positioning and net commercial positioning measured. A 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 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. 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.

The line plotted below price is the 1 week change of net speculative positioning – net commercial positioning. A high reading indicates heavy speculative (trend following) buying and heavy commercial (hedging) selling. The most recent data point is the highest since May 2015 (ended up being a top). The red dots on the chart indicate values at least as high as the most recent data point. High readings have signaled selling opportunities since the 2011 top. As such, a price surge now would indicate a change in trading behavior.
