About the Commitment of Traders Report

The Commitment of Traders report (or COT report) is a weekly report compiled by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. It shows the total long and short positions held by various large traders, including speculators, banks, producers and manufacturers.

Traders have long used the COT report as a tool to determine the positions that the big players are taking in the market. If you trade daily charts or longer, or if you trade financials or commodities through your MetaTrader broker, you may find the COT Indicator Suite to be a useful trading tool.

The data is compiled by the CFTC every Tuesday, and the report is released after market close on Friday. The data is then available for you to use at the market open on Sunday. All COT data is plotted on the weekly timeframe. As such, the COT report is not suitable for short-term or intraday trading.
