Asset Manager/Institutional Long Positions
Asset Manager Short Positions
Asset Manager Spreading
Leveraged Funds Long Positions
Leveraged Funds Short Positions
Leveraged Funds Spreading
...

In the "Symbols" field, type the security symbol that corresponds to the futures contract name.
For instance, if the ticker symbol of the Canadian dollar futures is "CD" then in order to download report data for the Canadian Dollar type "CD" next to it (CANADIAN DOLLAR=CD).

The COT report is downloaded from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission website (cftc.gov). The complete disaggregated Commitments of Traders Futures report is available here Commitments of Traders - Historical Data. It contains data for all other futures (Agriculture, Energy, Metals...).

Note that this item uses the same database created by Commitments of Traders - Historical Data. The database name is "commitments_traders".
"Prod_Merc" field corresponds to Dealers
"Swap" field corresponds to Asset Managers
"M_Money" field corresponds to Leveraged Funds


Examples that use the COT report:

- Plot the Dealer or Intermediary Long Positions:

On a new pane, click on "Add Indicator", select "Databases/Fields" tab, select "commitments_traders" database then finally pick the "prod_long" field.

Alternatively, you can right click on a pane, select "Edit Formula" then type the following trading formula:
a = GetData('commitments_traders', 'prod_long', LastData);
Plot(a, "prod_long", colorBlack, chartLine, StyleSymbolNone);

- Create a trading system that buys a futures contract if the Asset Manager Short Positions is higher than 2 times the Leveraged Funds Short Positions

buy = GetData("commitments_traders", "swap_short", LastData) > 2 * GetData("commitments_traders", "mm_short", LastData);

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
