Uncover Major Shifts in Financial Markets!

The CoT Report provides inside information about purchases and sales of futures contracts. The largest players in each market are required to disclose their positions to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) . The resulting CoT Report shows the net positions of traders, which are separated into three groups:

  1. Commercial Hedgers (“Dumb Money”)
  2. Small Traders (“Dumb Money”)
  3. Large Speculators (“Smart Money”)

Smart Money is Holding an Informational Edge

Market Regimes are determined by analyzing net Smart Money Positions relative to their maximum positions within three different timeframes (CoT Index). CoT Index values on a scale of 0 to 100% represent the positivity of signals within the respective timeframe. The scoreboard utilizes stars for each market’s smart money positions (up to 4 stars maximum) to enhance readability.

By combining short- to mid-term and mid-term to long-term Smart Money Positions, the specific market regime is determined. This information is valuable for both short-term traders and buy-and-hold investors, helping them make informed decisions based on market conditions.
