Here we take a look at our fantastic COT Implied Positions Indicator which is available as an add-on to our COT Indicator.

COT Implied Positions Indicator

What It Does

  • Cross references weekly COT (Commitment of Traders) data from two underlying, to create a proxy COT indicator for your chosen pair, showing the positioning of market participants in those two currencies.
  • Displays a neat visual aid on your charts

Best Thing About It

  • Totally unique product – only one on the market
  • Allows traders to use COT orientated strategies on pairs not featured in the weekly COT data

What Does It Look Like



The Indicator Has Two Key Elements To It

  • The green line shows the Non-Commercials (Banks & Institutions) that we look to align our trades with and the blue line shows the Commercials (Corporates, Multi-Nationals) that we want to trade against
  • In the chart above we only use green and blue lines for Non-Commercial & Commercial positioning but there is an option in the settings to turn on red lines showing speculators ( leveraged funds & other reportable)
