| WHAT IS COT DATA? Commitments of Traders (COT) data, recorded by the CFTC, shows the quantity of contracts, of any delivery date, that are bought (long) or sold (short) by two groups of traders. The first group are large "Commercial Traders" and the second group are large "Non-Commercial Traders", or Speculators. These two groups are called the "BIG DOGS" as their trading activity determines the market price. |
Commercial Traders are those businesses that intend to deliver or receive the commodity, Farmers intend to sell their wheat. A refinery intends to buy oil. Speculators plan to buy or sell the commodity before the delivery date is reached, in order to try and make a profit. Large means they are buying/selling a significant number of contracts. Data for a third group, called "Small Traders" is determined by subtracting the sum of the orders of the Commercials and Speculators from the total Open Interest.
Because traders within any group may be both long and short on quantities of contracts a significant parameter that often impacts price, is the NET (long minus short) quantity for commercials and speculators. A COT INDEX is derived from the net value - but more on that later. just scroll down
