S&P Commercial Traders Get Negative, But not Worryingly So
Not one new signal in my trading setups based on the Commitments of Traders reports issued weekly by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. My S&P 500 setup remains notably bullish for a fourth consecutive week, perhaps signalling that all will work out in the U.S. debt standoff craziness.
Mind you, the "smart money" commercial hedgers have gotten considerably more bearish in their derivatives positioning in Friday's data. See my newly updated latest signals table for more details on this and the other COT markets I'm following. Nonetheless, the commercials are far from being at any kind of historic extreme in their holdings, which means my setup remains in bullish mode for the time being. Good luck next week.
