    The Commodity Futures Trading Commission publishes the Commitments of Traders (COT) reports helping the public understand market dynamics, specifically, the COT reports provide a breakdown of each Tuesday’s open interest for futures and options markets. While most market followers look at charts, you will be looking at the actual condition that affects price change: large buying and selling, true supply/demand pressure that will be able to be seen each week as the billion-dollar successful traders and pools enter the marketplace.


    The COT reports provide a breakdown of each Tuesday’s open interest for futures and options on futures markets in which 20 or more traders hold positions equal to or above the reporting levels established by the CFTC. The Commitments of Traders (CoT) Software is based on the REAL positioning of market movers; you can follow the supply and demand imbalances and assess the momentum in the markets.

    CoT Reports

    The COT reports are based on position data supplied by reporting firms (FCMs, clearing members, foreign brokers and exchanges). While the position data is supplied by reporting firms, the actual trader category or classification is based on the predominant business purpose self-reported by traders on the CFTC Form 40 and is subject to review by CFTC staff for reasonableness.

    Generally, the data in the COT reports is from Tuesday and released Friday. The CFTC receives the data from the reporting firms on Wednesday morning and then corrects and verifies the data for release by Friday afternoon.

    COT indicators identify the level of bullishness and bearishness for every trader type along with movements which most of the time signals the end of pullbacks.

    What is the CoT Index?

    The cTrader COT index is a technique used to quickly quantify the actions of a group of traders which allows us to put into perspective the weekly positions of these commercial traders to have a constant reference point by which to judge their actions very quickly and how their current level of buying and selling compares to any previous time in the past 3 years.
