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,

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

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,

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

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

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

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

    • EURJPY Weakens On Price Sell-off With Eyes On 123.65 Zone EURJPY weakens on price sell-off following as it holds on its nearer term bear pressure. Support comes in at the 124.00 level where a break if seen will aim at the 123.50 level. A cut through here will turn focus to the 123.00 level and possibly lower towards the 122.50 level. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness. On the upside, resistance resides at the 124.50 level. Further out, we envisage a possible move towards the 125.00 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 125.50 level with a turn above here aiming at the 126.00 level. On the whole, EURJPY retains downside nearer term.

    • Date : 25th April 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th April 2019.FX News Today The BoJ left rates unchanged, but clarified its forward guidance, saying it will keep rates very low at least through spring of next year. Also, they will expand the eligible collateral and also consider the introduction of an Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) lending facility, that would allow to temporarily lend ETFs that the Bank holds to market participants. Japanese stock markets outperformed going into the announcement, but mainland China indices were under pressure. Stock futures are moving higher in Europe and the US. The weaker than expected Ifo reading yesterday and a negative GDP print from South Korea overnight added to concerns about the outlook for world growth, which means rates will stay low for longer. The Swedish Riksbank is widely expected to keep monetary policy on hold today. The front end WTI future is trading at USD 65.91 per barrel. Charts of the Day   Technician’s Corner USDCHF is consolidating since last night within 1.01970-1.02190 range. However, the pair still holds above 1.0200, suggesting the continuation of the uptrend, as the pair remains well above the medium term Support at 1.0123 level (6 month Resistance converted to Support). Intraday, however, and as momentum indicators have been flattened, consolidation mode could possibly hold within the day. A cross below 1.0200 could retest yesterday’s lows. AUDUSD within the strong 3-year Support, 0.7000-0.7020. It could react as a retracement level for the asset. However, the 3 black crows in the daily chart suggest that negative bias is increasing for AUDUSD. Main Macro Events Today Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – March durable goods orders are expected to rise 0.2%, following a 1.6% February decline. Shipments are expected to fall 1.5% in March, after a 0.2% reading in February. NZ Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The trade report is expected to show an improvement in the surplus to NZ$300 mln in March from NZ$12 mln in February.
