Gotta Love the Commitments Data

A few new signals take effect on the coming week's open of trading based on the latest Commitments of Traders data:

- cash for the Nasdaq-100
- bearish for the BKX U.S. Bank Index
- bullish for silver

Also, my very special (to me at least) signal for natural gas stays bullish one more week, then goes to cash on the open of Dec. 2. God love it! (If you traded the latest signal, you know what I mean - knock on wood.)

Hope you've had a good weekend, and good luck next week.

Natural Gas Goes Bullish; Banks and Silver to Cash: COT Data

Three signals take effect on the coming week's open based on the latest trader positioning as revealed in the weekly Commitments of Traders reports:

- bullish for natural gas
- cash for the BKX U.S. Bank Index and silver

See my latest signals table for more details on trader positioning in these markets and the seven other markets I trade using the free COT data from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Have a good week!

Trader Data Returns, Signals Bullish for Crude, Bearish for Bond

The weekly Commitments of Traders data is finally all up to date on the CFTC website.

And yes, that means the COTs Timer signals are back in action.

See my newly updated latest signals table to check how traders are positioning themselves in the 10 markets I'm trading using the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's data.

Natural Gas Bullish in a Week's Time

Some new signals take effect on this coming week's open:

- bullish for crude oil

- bearish for the 30-year Treasury bond (meaning yields would go up)

Also, copper goes to cash, but since I wasn't trading the earlier signal using the COT data, that's really neither here nor there.

Note too that my natural gas signal, in cash this coming week, goes to bullish in a week's time, on the open of Nov. 18.

Thanks for your patience during our forced hiatus due to the U.S. government shutdown.

I hope you've done well in the interim, and welcome back to COT-land! Good luck this week.

COT Schedule Back on Track on Friday

Apologies for the lack of a post or Commitments of Traders update this past weekend.

As previously mentioned, the COT reports were suspended during the U.S. government shutdown, and the missing weeks of COT data are still not fully reported on the website of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The CFTC says in this announcement it expects to catch up to its usual weekly report schedule by the end of this week.

So I should be able to return to my usual COT updates after this Friday afternoon's COT data release.

Thanks for your patience. I'll see you back here after Friday.
