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 plot below price is the 1 week change in aggregated commercial and speculative positions. A high reading indicates strong speculative buying and strong commercial selling and warns of a market top. A low reading indicates strong speculative selling and strong commercial buying and warns of a market bottom. The current reading for this indicator has only been registered once before; in April 2003, which was a major price low. This same method warned of a crude top last week (see here). Crude dropped nearly 7% last week.
