Commitments of Traders Data (COT)
The chart above can be used to view the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) commitments of traders data (or COT in short) in an easily readable format. The data is published by the CFTC every week on Friday and contains an aggregated report of the different holdings of market participants in the US futures market (where you can trade currencies, commodities and metals such as gold and silver)
Open interest is the total of all futures and/or option contracts entered into and not yet offset by a transaction. The aggregate of all long open interest is equal to the aggregate of all short open interest.
