Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

The gold and silver CoT data improved nicely this week And this was on Tuesday, before the metals got the majority of this week’s bearish price activity. All in all, nice progress here. Gold sees large specs puking and Commercial traders taking some longs and covering some shorts. The little guy had enough and started shorting. The silver CoT shows large Specs selling and shorting … Continue reading Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

Gold and Silver CoT data continue moderately improving Gold saw large Specs and Commercials basically in a wash, with a common theme a reduction in open interest. Of positive note, the little guy puked some long positions. Never a bad thing. Silver also saw a reduction in open interest by Specs and Commercials, but curiously saw short covering by the little guy. All in all … Continue reading Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

In NFTRH 636 we noted.. “Unfortunately, the gold and silver Commitments of Traders data are not offering positive signals. While neither is a show stopper, we’d prefer to see speculators less bullish on both metals at this point. But it has been a strange year for CoT signals and I am going to give this lower priority for now.” Unfortunately, it was not a lower … Continue reading Gold & Silver Commitments of Traders

About the Silver CoT Setup

A screenshot from NFTRH 630: Silver bugs want to see this get fixed, plain and simple. If you hear any excuse making or worse, accusations of wrong-doing pretending to be analysis, you might want to run away from that garbage, which sadly and all too often emanates from the gold/silver bug “community”. The run up in silver was epic and so now in hindsight, should … Continue reading About the Silver CoT Setup

Gold and Silver CoT [w/ edit]

Here is how they shook out as of Tuesday the 31st. Gold open interest continued to diminish as large Specs sold way more than they shorted and Commercials reduced longs and reduced even more shorts. The little guy? He’s backing out the door too. Silver open interest continues to drop (from already greatly depressed levels) as large Specs closed longs and shorts and Commercials did … Continue reading Gold and Silver CoT [w/ edit]

About That Gold CoT…

As you probably know, I’ve occasionally posted and interpreted the gold Commitments of Traders data noting its high risk signals for months (most recently here). All the while the gold price declined around a hundred bucks an ounce. Normally at the end of a correction to the gold price the CoT would be nice and contrary bullish. Today, it is anything but as large speculative … Continue reading About That Gold CoT…

Gold and Silver CoT Remain a Concern

Just reading it as I see it, folks. Gold commitments of traders saw the specs press long and the commercials press short. Silver saw specs cover shorts and press some longs while commercials net shorted with some gusto. So it all comes down to whom you believe is ‘smart’. Traditionally, at bear turning points the commercials are positioned very negative as they are today, as … Continue reading Gold and Silver CoT Remain a Concern

Gold and Silver CoT Improvement, as Expected

With the recent price slams in both gold and silver you just knew that the large specs were puking ’em up and the commercial traders were covering net shorts. The gold price pulled back from the low-1500s to the mid-1400s and the usual suspects reacted accordingly. The silver price got dumped from above 18 to below 16.75 and the usual suspects reacted accordingly. I’ll edit … Continue reading Gold and Silver CoT Improvement, as Expected

Gold CoT Saw the Goons Assembled…

…and ready to strike as of Tuesday the 24th. They amassed heavy open interest and pressed the net shorts into the week’s high, which was not so coincidentally the day before the “hit” that some will sell as conspiracy. Open interest, net spec longs and net commercial shorts all hit their highs for the move before the pullback. It was just time, folks. All this … Continue reading Gold CoT Saw the Goons Assembled…
