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

Hi everyone,

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,

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

Hi everyone,

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

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

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

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

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,

Hi everyone,

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.

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

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

    • Date : 26th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th June 2019.FX News Today A less than dovish comment from Fed dove Bullard, with the Chairman Powell soothed a bit, and along with the usual trade uncertainty and US-Iran concerns, all combined with softer US data to take Wall Street and Treasury yields lower overnight. Hence in Asia session, the rally on bond markets run out of steam and stocks struggled as optimism on an immediate rate cut from the Fed and a breakthrough in US-Sino trade talk fades. Fed Chair Powell repeated the phrase the Fed is “closely monitoring“. He highlighted downside risks to the economy again, but didn’t go beyond last week’s guidance on rates. Presidents Trump and Xi are likely to meet on Saturday, where they may agree to reopen trade talks. Source stories meanwhile suggest that the US is willing to suspend the next round of China tariffs if trade talks resume, but Trump and Xi Jinping are not expected to agree on a detailed trade deal at the G-20 meeting. Against that background stock markets struggled during the Asian session. Topix and Nikkei corrected -0.71% and -0.70% respectively The RBNZ kept rates at record lows, but said further cuts may be needed. The WTI future is trading at $59.10 per barrel amid US-Iran tensions. German consumer confidence deteriorates. It fell back to 9.8 in the advance July reading. This is the lowest number since April 2017. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURCHF has found a footing into 1.10 area after coming under significant pressure last week, in the wake of ECB President Draghi’s eyebrow raising dovish shift, which has been the most notable of a growing chorus of dovish voices on the central bank’s governing council. Assuming the ECB remains on the path of further monetary policy easing ,the EURCHF is expected to retain a declining bias. The SNB’s -0.75% deposit rate and threat of tactical intervention hasn’t been sufficient to arrest recent appreciation of the Franc. Main Macro Events Today   ECB’s Mersch speech (EUR, GMT 08:00) BoE’s Governor Carney speech (GBP, GMT 09:00) Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to be flat in May, after a -2.1% figure in April. Transportation orders should fall -0.5%. Boeing orders fell to just zero from a dismal 4 in April, with the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments.

    • Date : 25th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th June 2019.FX News Today Treasury yields extended declines in a quiet and cautious Monday action. The front end and belly of the curve mostly led the way on safe haven flows and as the FOMC’s more dovish than expected twist last Wednesday continued to support. Equities were little changed after a narrow, range bound trade. Tensions with Iran continued to drive cash into the safety of Treasuries, especially after President Trump announced he was placing more sanctions against its supreme leader and other top Iran officials has closed the path to a diplomatic solution (on the Ayatollah Khamenei, personally). US futures are down -0.2-0.5% as traders await Powell’s speech today. TheWTI future saw a high of $57.98 per barrel before pulling back slightly to now $57.45. Wall Street was in a more wait-and-see mode on the geopolitical risks, and as global markets await the U.S.-China trade talks at the G20 later in the week. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD printed fresh 3-month highs just over 1.1411, up from 1.1380 lows at the open. The Euro moved to session highs after the weaker Dallas Fed index. The pairing ran into sellers at 1.1400, seeing a pullback to 1.1386 lows. Prospects for a July Fed rate cut continue to weigh on the Dollar, though soft EU data are likely to push the ECB toward further stimulus over the next few months, largely offsetting potential Fed policy easing. The March 20 high of 1.1448 is the next resistance level. Gold has printed five-plus year highs of $1,439.11, up from opening lows of $1,418.17. US/Iran tensions, along with potential for a Fed rate cut in July, and a weaker Dollar have all combined to put a bid under gold prices. The contract can be expected to remain in buy-the-dip mode for the foreseeable future, and continue to benefit from safe-haven flows on any fresh clashes in the Mideast. Main Macro Events Today NO OPEC Meeting in June –The dates of the separate OPEC ministerial meeting and of OPEC and its allies, known as OPEC+, have been changed to July 1-2, from June 25-26. CB Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Consumer Confidence is expected to slip to 133.5 in June from 134.1 in May, versus a 16-month low of 121.7 as recently as January and an 18-year high of 137.9 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high. Fed’s Chair Powell speech (USD, GMT 17:00) Support and Resistance levels Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Yep, it's really uncomfortable to trade from tablet or Android. But for whom how
    • Ethereum Price Prediction: Long-term (ETH) Value Forecast – June 22   ETH/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging   ·         Resistance Levels: $300, $320, $340 ·         Support Levels: $280, $260, $240   The ETH/USD pair is now in a bullish trend. In the last one month, the price of Ethereum had been trading between the levels of $220 and $280. The bulls had made several attempts to break out this range but to no avail. On June 21, the bulls broke the $280 upper price range and reached the previous high of $315 price level.   The 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA are trending  northward indicating an uptrend. A trend line has been drawn to determine the duration of the bullish trend. If a bullish trend is ongoing, the candlestick will test the trend line and make an upward move to the previous highs or new highs.   eETH/USD pair is still in a bullish trend. However, if price breaks the trend line and another candlestick closes on the opposite of it; the bullish trend is said to be terminated. The ETH price is expected to reach a high of $340 price level. Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.     The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.
