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 most recent COT data (as of 6/14) reveals that the 1 week net change in speculative-commercial positioning is large. Prior changes of this magnitude are shown with red dots. Think about this as follows, ‘the ownership profile for Swiss Francs just underwent an extreme change with speculators buying and hedgers selling.’ This type of activity can signal optimism extremes and therefore price highs.
