We make up a weekly medium-term trade list based on CFTC reports and technical analysis.

The table below provides a description of the technical condition of the market on the most popular financial instruments, as well as information on the large speculators’ actions according to the last COT reports and the previous period.

If you want to use CFTC reports in your trading practice, you should understand that for an objective assessment of the situation it’s not enough to know the data of the last report. The dynamic is more important, in other words, comparing the statistics of large speculators’ actions in the current period with the previous one, so we publish both values in the table.

E-Mini S&P500 (ESZ17)

The trend is bullish, the impulse wave develops. A pullback entry point on the Daily timeframe will appear after another correction formation, at the same time the price movement is very active that’s why the reliable market entry is also possible on smaller timeframes.

COT net position indicator increased but didn’t reverse. The major players’ opinion doesn’t still correspond to the market technical picture and it makes sense to reduce the position size when an entry point appears in the trend direction.
