Commitments of Traders (COT) is a report issued by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). It aggregates the holdings of participants in the U.S. futures markets (primarily based in Chicago and New York), where commodities, metals, and currencies are bought and sold. The COT is released every Friday at 3:30 Eastern Time, and reflects the commitments of traders for the prior Tuesday.

The COT provides a breakdown of aggregate positions held by three different types of traders:

  1. “commercial traders” (in forex, typically hedgers),
  2. “non-commercial traders” (typically, large speculators),
  3. “non-reportable” (typically, small speculators).

Helpful Hints: COT video explains how Weekly non-commercial trading statistics in the US futures market, plotted against currency rates to illustrate forex sentiment.

  • Hi FXmosphere, this is a really handy and easy to use COT tool with data charts, I have been using these for years, the twitter feed is a great backlink to Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and they have some pretty good reports and informative podcasts.
