Gold Trading

COT Data Since 2009

  • a bull market attracts speculators and the net long positions at both tops and bottoms are significantly higher of those in a bear market. Common sense.
  • the price spike in 2016 attracted a record crowd with 280k net long positions at the 2016 summer top, giving us hope that a new bull market was in progress.
  • however, the sharp sell off into Dec reduced the net long positions to 96k, which was much lower than average bull market value at bottoms.
  • since Dec, prices have recovered about half, while net long positions only reached 164k, which is a bear market value.
