The Commitments of Traders (CoT) charts are based on the CoT reports which are realised by the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) on every Friday. CoT report provides a overview of aggregate positions held by the 1) commercial traders (the hedgers) or 2) non-commercial traders (known also as a large speculators) or 3) a small speculators. Therefore the Commitments of Traders charts are reflecting the market sentiment between the different types of traders and helps you to see the overall picture of market and determine who is buying and who is selling. It is anticipated that small speculators are generally wrong and that the large commercial traders are generally right about the market.
