Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC) Crude Oil Non-Commercial Net Positions weekly report reflects the difference between the total volume of long and short crude oil positions existing in the market and opened by non-commercial (speculative) traders. The report only includes US futures markets (Chicago and New York Exchanges).
So the indicator is a net volume of long crude oil positions in the United States. Its growth indicates a strengthening of crude oil futures in the past week and allows making a forecast about the future price behavior.
