The COT Positions Perfect Storm ?

The COT Positions Perfect Storm ?  $SPY    #Trading #Investing #SP500 #stocks
​Be the Judge

Since Emerging Markets Turmoil began at then end of July 2015 and
the return from vacations from most of us, a lot of big change in
COT ( Commitment of Traders ) Positions​​ have reached critical level.

What we have here is for me a potential Molotov Financial Cocktail:

1) ​​On the E-Mini SP500 Futures: ​​​​​​​Small Speculators did add 200.3k
​contracts in the past two weeks​, one of ​the biggest rise in term of
​bi-weekly posisitions shift and one of the longest position ​of the
​past 5 years.. ( See First Row - Left Chart Below - Blue Line )

2) ​​US Treasury 5 Year Note Futures : Large Speculators are the shortest of the past 5 years.
​( See First Row - Right Chart Below - Green Line )

3) ​​SP500 Volatility Index - VIX Futures : Large Speculators are the longest of the past 5 years.
​( See Second Row - Left Chart Below - Green Line )


4) ​​US Dollar Index - DXY Futures : Large Speculators are quite long compare to the past 5 years.
​( See Second Row - Right Chart Below - Green Line )

5) ​​High Grade Copper Futures : Large Speculators are quite short compare to the past 5 years.
​( See Third Row - Left Chart Below - Green Line )

​​6) ​​US Treasury Ultra T-Bond Futures : Large Speculators are quite short compare of the past 5 years.
​( See Third Row - Right Chart Below - Green Line )

​​​​​​​​​​​And not to mention Lumber Futures (LSU5) and Mexican Pesos (M6U5) were Large Speculators are the shortest of the past 5 years...

​​​​​Taking account of the huge volatility and low liquidity that we have now and the big positions from speculators, it will not be a surprise to see a capitulation position wave at some point...
