  1. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Platinum COT Change (52W) / C - 18%, LS – 20% / FTG Score / D -7.4, W -19.4, M -16.1 / The larger than average change in Large Specs and Commercials positions, together with the negative reading from FTG suggest we could see some weakness from platinum in the coming days… Bitcoin (CME) COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 25.0, W 60.3, M 24.5 / We do not have such a history of cot data to be certain that we have cot signal that we can act upon, nevertheless it is interesting to see Large specs continuing to increase their net short positions, seeing Commercials net short and only Small specs taking the long side of the market. The all time extreme signal in LS would be generally considered a bullish signal, small spec net long a bearish FTG scores, especially the weekly show significant support for further rally in the market. Canadian Dollar COT Extreme / C - 72, LS – 68 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 37.5, W -26.2, M -25.7 / In the past few weeks we have witnessed traders changing their positions towards a more bearish situation. The example from May 2017 to October the same year suggests that we could see this trend continuing for some time before the market dips back down. Daily FTG scores seem to back this, although the weekly and monthly already expect changes happening to the CAD. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  2. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Swiss Franc COT Change (52W) / C - 26%, LS – 33% / FTG Score / D 22.7, W -28.5, M 2.8 / Huge bearish cot change signal indicating weakness ahead, weekly FTG score supporting it. Heating Oil COT Extreme / C - 183, LS – 184 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -43.4, W 1.2, M -34.3 / Significant bullish cot extreme, but caution is advised: 1) Large weakness measured in the market by FTG (daily score of -43.4) and 2) correlating energy markets further away in extremes. Gold COT Extreme / C, LS – 62 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 27.9, W 35.2, M 46.1 / Bearish cot extreme. Not the largest, but at a level worth mentioning. The market is at an important resistance, if it breaks through, we could see the extreme widen further. FTG scores supporting the market, especially in the long timeframes. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  3. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Gold COT Change (52W) / C - 32%, LS – 36%, SS - 28% / FTG Score / D 17.8, W 43.3, M 46.1 / Both cot signal, the change and the extreme suggest that fallback in prices could happen. FTG scores are positive showing strength, but mainly on the weekly & monthly horizon: I can imagine some decline in the near term, but eventually see prices head north again. Oats COT Extreme / C, LS – 308 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 32.6, W 52.3, M 57.1 / It seems as if the bearish cot extreme signal I’ve been talking about the last time has taken oats down and judging by the size of this extreme I’d be expecting further declines coming. Brazilian Real COT Extreme / C, LS – 225 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -20.8, W -34.6, M -25.9 / The cot report is indicating a bullish extreme in Traders positions, but FTG scores indicate weakness in the market it may be advisable to wait for a better opportunity. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  4. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Rough Rice COT Change (52W) / C - 28%, LS – 21%, SS - 41% / FTG Score / D 48.2, W -34.3, M -9.2 / This bearish change signal coming from the cot report suggests lower prices coming. Could be the case, although high daily FTG score (positive) makes me cautious. Oats COT Extreme / C - 76, LS – 307 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 21.0, W 31.5, M 42.0 / Beautiful bearish cot extreme near the top -> let us be prepared for much cheaper oats. Heating Oil COT Extreme / C - 14, LS – 182 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -13.3, W -23.3, M -24.5 / Significant bullish cot extreme in the market, but in my opinion it could grow larger. In anyways, it seems that there may be a good buying opportunity soon. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  5. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Corn COT Change (52W) / C - 36%, LS – 31%, SS - 16% / FTG Score / D 27.8, W 43.3, M 11.3 / Bearish cot change signal suggesting some weakness early this week, but FTG seems to support further price increases. Let’s not forget that not long ago we have had a significant bullish cot extreme and bearish extremes are still far away. Cotton COT Extreme / C, LS – 163 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -62.8, W -18.6, M -17.9 / Huge bullish extreme in recent cot report, but I’d wait a bit longer before entering the market. -62.8 daily FTG score suggests a near term new test of lows. Oats COT Index (10 year) / C - 11%, LS – 98%, SS - 48% / FTG Score / D 28.1, W 49.5, M 44.3 / Bearish cot extreme in oats suggesting that prices could retreat to lower levels in the next couple of weeks. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  6. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Australian Dollar COT Change (52W) / C - 17%, LS – 15%, SS - 14% / FTG Score / D -28.1, W -55.9, M -43.8 / We can see a bullish cot change signal, an extreme cot signal becoming very bullish week by week, but bearish FTG readings suggest we may need to wait a little longer. Euro COT Extreme / LS – 125 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -50.9, W -47.4, M -19.0 / The bullish extreme in Euro similarly to AUD is becoming larger and larger, but has not yet reached all time levels. Due to the fundamentals we are all aware of (US economy’s relative strength compared to rest of the world), I would expect a significant extreme (all time) before Euro turns north. Swiss Franc COT Index (10 year) / C - 95%, LS – 10%, SS - 6% / FTG Score / D -33.2, W -28.7, M -10.1 / The bullish extreme in the CHF is the strongest, could be one of the first ones that may advance against the USD… or one might see some potential in going long here against a weaker currency like the Russian ruble or the MXP- All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  7. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Swiss Franc COT Change (52W) / C - 15%, LS – 14%, SS - 10% / FTG Score / D -7.2, W -49.9, M -13.7 / All of our main cot signals are pointing upwards, but the high weekly FTG score (bearish) warns us to be cautious, further declines could be on their way. Russian Ruble COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 17.3, W -24.4, M -50.2 / If you were following these signals, then probably you have hopped on a profitable wagon here:) In accordance with the cot extreme signal the market started to move lower and the picture suggests this may continue for many more weeks and months. Corn COT Extreme / LS, SS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -25.9, W -48.9, M -52.2 / My last week’s remark still holds and you can see that the extreme in the market simply became even larger. FTG system still very bearish, thus patients is still necessary here. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  8. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Oats COT Change (52W) / C - 30%, LS – 32%, SS - 14% / FTG Score / D 27.1, W 35.7, M 35.6 / No extreme / bearish cot change signal / strong FTG scores: pretty mixed up picture here, maybe it’s best to step aside and wait for a better more clearer situation. Russian Ruble COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 15.3, W -27.9, M -52.5 / The all time extreme combined with such FTG scores says that a very nice shorting opportunity is on the table here:) Corn COT Extreme / LS, SS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -25.0, W -50.9, M -48.6 / All time bullish extreme but here we do not have support from FTG, thus there may be a good chance that the market is continuing the decline and as it does, we will be receiving even greater extremes the next couple of weeks. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  9. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Cocoa COT Change (52W) / C - 23%, LS – 26%, SS - 28% / FTG Score / D 29.0, W 19.7, M -2.5 / Bearish cot change signaling some decline for this week, but the larger picture seems to remain bullish. Bitcoin (CME) COT Extreme / LS, SS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 7.4, W -18.3, M 12.7 / Following my remarks from last post I am still cautious here and waiting for enough history to be able to start seeing correlations between cot data and price action. Mexican Peso COT Extreme / C – 312 report, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 13.3, W -9.2, M -57.8 / If you are someone who is expecting a USD rise, then you should consider the Mexican peso as a means of trading it. The all time bearish cot extreme speaks for itself. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  10. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Brazilian Real COT Change (52W) / C - 34%, LS – 32%, SS - 21% / FTG Score / D -40.3, W -47.5, M -43.2 / Very large change has happened in Traders positions here (bullish cot signal), but FTG scores indicate that further weakness is on its way, so maybe we should wait a bit… Bitcoin (CME) COT Extreme / LS, SS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 4.4, W -8.8, M 10.9 / COT analysis is here is not as straight forward here since we are talking about only a 1 year history for Bitcoin, but the fact that small speculators are heavily long suggests to me that there could be a higher chance for the market to move lower in the next couple of weeks /months. We will see… interesting market Russian Ruble COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -18.8, W -40.9, M -53.2 / One of the nicest opportunities this week: All time cot extreme signal (bearish) and a support from FTG as well. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  11. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Lean Hogs COT Change (52W) / C - 35%, LS – 50%, SS - 42% / FTG Score / D 25.6, W -6.7, M 8.1 / Seem as if the market started reacting to these bearish signals coming from the cot report. Let’s see what happens the next few weeks. Live Cattle COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 17.9, W 8.9, M -2.8 / As in case of Lean hogs, here we can also find signs that the market started to change in accordance with the cot signals. Such extremes are always great signals that eventually produce results. Mexican Peso COT Extreme / LS – 308, SS – 308 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 6.5, W -29.7, M -67.9 / As the extreme grew larger, so did FTG scores become even more bearish. Now we have an ever higher probability for the currency to lose value against the USD. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  12. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Lean Hogs COT Change (52W) / C - 50%, LS – 27%, SS - 57% / COT Extreme / SS – 1270 COT extreme / FTG Score / D 6.9, W -12.2, M 14.3 / All of our cot signals are bearish, ftg scores are not against this view either so we may be in for a top soon… Live Cattle COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 4.4, W 8.9, M 4.5 / Correlating markets (LH) so we are not surprised to see this bearish cot signal in live cattle… Pretty obvious picture, not much to argue about:) Mexican Peso COT Extreme / LS – 302, SS - 303 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 4.8, W -11.8, M -42.5 / Beautiful bearish cot extreme signal which of course means that the chances of Mexican peso to lose value against the USD has risen dramatically. Looking at examples from the past one can easily come to the conclusion that cot extreme signals seem to be very efficient in this market. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  13. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Sugar COT Change (52W) / C - 26%, LS – 24%, SS - 34% / FTG Score / D -30.1, W -37.5, M -28.6 / Huge cot change signal, but possibly late for us… COT extreme still bullish, but significant bearish FTG scores suggest the real rally is further away, months or even years should not surprise us. Wheat (Kansas) COT Extreme / C - 135, LS – 156 COT extreme / FTG Score / D -41.2, W 0.8, M -37.6 / Huge bullish cot extreme can be witnessed here indicating a rally ahead of us. By looking at FTG scores I would expect a bit of a decline now giving us better entry points. Live Cattle COT Extreme / LS – 68, SS - 362 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 27.0, W 21.8, M -4.0 / Growing bearish cot extreme suggesting a top soon, but FTG scores indicating strength in the market suggests that patients could be a profitable direction now. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  14. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Silver COT Change (52W) / C - 28%, LS – 30% / FTG Score / D 3.0, W -17.7, M -38.4 / Although we have this large bullish cot change signal, the fact that the market fell after bearish extremes of past few weeks suggests that further decline is very possible in silver. This is fully supported by FTG scores: the more we look out in time, the stronger these scores become. Euro COT Extreme / C - 103, LS – 115 COT extreme / FTG Score / D -49.7, W -46.1, M -32.0 / Bullish extreme growing steadily suggesting possible euro strengthening, but caution is advised, FTG scores show a very bearish picture bot in the short and also in the long term. Rough Rice COT Extreme / C - 192, LS – 112 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -7.2, W -27.1, M -36.8 / We may need to wait a few more weeks, but rough rice seem to be giving us a good trading opportunity. The extreme is leaning towards the bullish side again and if we look at what the market did in the past in such cases, we can conclude a high chance of probability for it rally once more. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
  15. Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. New Zealand Dollar COT Change (52W) / C - 27%, LS – 30% / FTG Score / D -16.9, W -30.2, M -43.6 / Huge bearish cot change signal which brings expectations of lower prices in the short run… still, I’d say that we shouldn’t forget about the all-time bullish extreme which caused the recent rallies --> it is still in place… On the other hand we see greater weaknesses in the future from FuturesTradingGuides: Monthly FTG score at -43.6, weekly scores are also significant… Sum: I may step aside from this market and search for more clearer opportunities. Heating Oil COT Extreme / C - 76, LS – 154, SS – 73 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -6.6, W 13.4, M -6.8 / My focus is purely on the cot report here, since FTG scores are more or less in neutral zone for me… Looking at the 5-year chart it becomes clear that we are headed towards the end of this decline. I am not suggesting to exit current short positions / enter long, since throughout my years of experience I have seen multiple examples of extremes widening to greater and great levels for many weeks/months… If I had to bet, I’d say there is a large chance this will happen here, but (!) the warning signs are here. Lumber COT Extreme / C, LS – 147 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -33.4, W -5.2, M 39.5 / Huge bullish extreme suggesting higher prices coming, still… -33.4 daily FTG scores pull me back from entering yet. The monthly scores definitely support the picture painted by the cot report. Sum: we may see a shift in the trend happening the next couple of months. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
