    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Sugar COT Change (52W) / C – 27%, LS – 23%, SS – 21% / FTG Score / D -42.4, W -48.9, M -3.5 / Large bearish cot change signal combined with FTG scores that signal weakness in the market --> I am expecting a bit of pullback in prices. On the other hand we should not forget about the bullish cot extreme that triggered this rally and the fact that we are pretty far away from bearish extremes. RBOB Gasoline COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 29.1, W 18.6, M -13.4 / The All time bearish cot extreme in Gasoline suggest prices have reached their top, we should be seeing lower prices coming. Swiss Franc COT Extreme / LS – 564 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -39.6, W 5.1, M -5.9 / The increase that we have witnessed suggests that the bullish cot extreme we have in the market may very well be successful.

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Mexican Peso COT Change (52W) / C – 28%, LS – 27%, SS – 31% / FTG Score / D -29.6, W -18, M -46.1 / Huge change in Traders positions (bullish cot signal) and the stresses in the market are also becoming more and more bullish. Because of the FTG scores I’d be neglecting this market for now. Swiss Franc COT Extreme / C – 567, LS – 563 report, SS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -38.6, W 10.2, M -14 / The extreme became even greater than last week, but the price was unable to continue its decline. Maybe the downtrend is over? I’d be betting on that more… Since we have still a negative FTG score (daily), I may wait until it becomes positive. Australian Dollar COT Extreme / C - 119, LS – 118, SS - 120 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D -22.3, W -12.2, M -33.1 / Maybe not as large extreme as for CHF, but still big enough to consider taking a position on the LONG side. Same as in case of MXP and CHF, it would be nice to see supporting FTG scores. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Orange Juice COT Change (52W) / C – 29%, LS – 26%, SS – 30% / Nice signal from the change in Traders positions, but I don’t see a big extreme yet. Swiss Franc COT Extreme / C – 566, LS – 307 report, SS – All Time COT extreme / Huge bullish cot extreme in Swiss Franc! In the past the market reacted well to these tense situations, so I’m expecting this to repeat again. I’ve just subscribed to FX Trading Guides and now I can see that I should wait a bit before entering the market. Attached you can see the daily-weekly and monthly FTG scores that measure strength/weakness in the market. I gathered all major currencies with CHF. Wheat COT Extreme / C - 41, LS – 207 report COT extreme / Very large bearish extreme here suggesting further declines to come. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Orange Juice COT Change (52W) / C – 28%, LS – 22%, SS – 22% / The large change in Traders positions suggest that prices may fall back a little, but analyzing the stress level in the market I can except further increases in the next weeks, months ahead. S&P-500 COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / The most bearish of all indexes is the S&P-500. The all time cot extreme makes this clear. I’d be careful though, since the picture seems to be very bullish in Nasdaq and the Dow. Soybean Meal COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / Soybean markets in my experience tend to react very well to cot extreme signals (just take a brief look at some historical examples…), so the fact that we have all time bearish cot extreme in Commercial’s AND Large Speculators positions makes me excited.

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Rough Rice COT Change (52W) / C – 21%, LS – 14%, SS – 31% / Bearish COT change signal combined with an extreme bearish cot extreme. Eyes on rough Rice. Coffee COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / All time bullish cot extreme in Coffee! Let the chart speak for itself Euro COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / LS at a bearish cot extreme (all time) suggesting prices should turn downwards.

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Rough Rice COT Change (52W) / C – 15%, LS – 10%, SS – 22% / Although we have this bearish cot change signal, I’d stay away from any short trade. Volume and OI analysis is supporting further rallies in the market and the extreme isn’t that significant either. S&P-500 COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / Interesting to see such a bearish extreme in S&P, when we have nothing similar in Nasdaq and the Dow… tricky situation that’s for sure. Nevertheless if someone is considering shorting here, they may be happy with the fact that the cot report is backing the trade. British Pound COT Extreme / C - 194, LS – 196 report COT extreme / As prices gone higher, the bearish cot extreme has also become larger – no surprise here.

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Gold COT Change (52W) / C – 19%, LS – 19% / Bullish cot change signal possibly pushing prices higher the next few days, but no extreme. Silver COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / Further increase in the cot extreme here. Great example that all time extremes could be with us for pretty long time before the market reacts. FuturesTradingGuides is indicating a -51.79 FTG score on a short time frame and a -56.99 FTG score for medium term so actually even though we have this huge bullish extreme, I’m waiting… British Pound COT Extreme / C - 193, LS – 194 report COT extreme / Huge Bearish cot extreme in GBP suggesting an end to this rally we have been witnessing since the beginning of 2017.

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Soybeans COT Change (52W) / C – 22%, LS – 19%, SS – 5% / COT Extreme / C - 53, LS – 52 report COT extreme / The rally continued, the extreme became larger, but it is questionable whether or not it is large enough to make any changes to the rally. The cot change signal suggest a pullback in this rally. Soybean Meal COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / The extreme became even greater… Eyes on this market Silver COT Extreme / C - 133, LS – 778 report COT extreme / Huge bullish cot extreme in Silver suggesting higher prices to come!

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Soybeans COT Change (52W) / C – 22%, LS – 21%, SS – 12% / The cot change signal is clearly bearish (maybe influencing the market early this week), but the extreme is not that obvious. Large Speculators were at these levels roughly a year ago, but other than that, the bullish cot extreme from 5 weeks ago is still acting. So my assumption is this: we may see a bit of a decline, but it should not be long lived and thus we could easily see the continuation of the rally. Soybean Meal COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / Unquestionable bearish cot extreme --> be prepared for lower prices to come. Dow Jones-30 COT Extreme / C, LS – 91 report COT extreme / Interesting to get to a bullish extreme so fast (under a month), but looking at the price action, our surprise should be washed away:) All the best, Dunstan COT Charts Futures Trading

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Dow Jones-30 COT Change (52W) / C – 57%, LS – 42%, SS – 34% / Huge bullish cot change signal, but we should not be surprised, since there has been a very large drop in prices. The signal suggests higher prices early this week. Crude Oil COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / Last week’s decline may have confirmed the top we have been waiting for since we have had this all time cot extreme in the market. Cocoa COT Extreme / C – 65, LS – 64 report COT extreme / Not much here… I’d say that the last major bullish cot extreme is still in place: I’m expecting higher prices to come. You may want to check out the following cool video about FuturesTradingGuides.com, the service I have mentioned not long ago. They have enhanced their results page and you can now see the system’s performance on a longer time horizon! All the best, Dunstan COT Charts

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Natural Gas COT Change (52W) / C – 28%, LS – 30%, SS – 12% / Due to the bearish cot change signal we could see a bit of a decline in the market, but the fact that the last cot extreme signal was bullish and effective, we should be prepared for further rallies in Natural Gas. Crude Oil COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / All Time bearish cot extreme, but (!) caution is advised as stated in the cot review -> these extremes can stay for a few weeks or even months before the market trend starts to shift. British Pound COT Extreme / LS – 174 report COT extreme / Not an all time extreme, but significant enough to be careful. The cot report is signaling an end to the rally in GBP. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. S&P-500 COT Change (52W) / C – 35%, LS – 53%, SS – 10% / One word: Crazy… Euro COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / As the market moved further up, the extreme has become even greater… The question is not IF it is going to burst, but WHEN? Heating Oil COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / Not much changed from last week. Prices could not gain too much, but the extreme became larger. All the best, Dunstan COT Charts

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. S&P-500 COT Change (52W) / C – 26%, LS – 28%, SS – 15% / Not only do we have a bearish cot change signal in the market, but we have the extreme risen to pretty large levels again. The cot report is definitely backing the notion that we are in a bubble Euro COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / We have never seen Large Speculators being so bullish about Euro in the past, so we can assume that it is likely we will see an end to rally in Euro soon… Heating Oil COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / The picture is pretty clear here as well… (ohh I just love these all-time cot extreme signals…) We should start positioning ourselves for a more bearish market to come All the best, Dunstan COT Charts

    Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Australian Dollar COT Change (52W) / C – 45%, LS – 59%, SS – 12% / Both of our major cot signals are showing positive signs for the market: we have had a major change in Traders positions and with it we have reached a considerable bullish stress level. I would say that the chances are high for further increase. Coffee COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / The picture speaks for itself! Beautiful bullish extreme close to support levels. 30-Year Bond COT Extreme / LS – 679 report COT extreme / Interesting to see such a large bearish extreme when prices are not actually that high… I wouldn’t be betting large on further declines, but who knows. I would rather look for other opportunities that are more obvious (like coffee for example). All the best, Dunstan COT Charts
