The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) produces a publication each Tuesday titled the Commitments of Traders Report (COT). This report shows the amount of open interest on currency futures which are traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). The COT report shows how many traders are either buying or selling a particular currency pair. This valuable data is interpreted as market sentiment, which traders use to trade on the correct side of the trend.
This COT indicator pulls data directly from the CFTC website and plots it directly below a chart in an easy to read format.
Three lines are displayed to represent Commercial, Non-Commercial and Non-Reportable positions as defined by the CFTC.
