How I use the CFTC cot data

I just wanted to record a short video to explain how I use the COT data for my own trading analysis, and I was prompted by a question I received following my live presentation at the CME and Interactive brokers trading round the world event last month, which I’m delighted to say was a great success. As you will see from the video the approach I use is very simple, and whilst the COT report is far from perfect, I do believe it has some useful nuggets of information for us as traders, and whilst the video focuses on the oil market, I also use the cot report when trend trading in the currency markets, which once again provides a longer term view of the market sentiment for all the major currencies.
