Trader Positions

Thursday, April 16, 2015
 The Commitment of Traders report provides information about the trend and the strength of the commitment traders have towards that trend in each of the commodities markets.

If traders are overwhelmingly long or increasing their long positions, the we will have a bullish bias on that market.  Similarly, if traders are short or increasing their short positions that we will have a bearish bias.

The change in long or short positions can tell us a little bit about the trend in investor sentiment.  For example:  Long positions have declined last week and short positions have increased.  This seems to indicate that there is some decline in bullish sentiment.
