Topic: COT Indikator for FSB Pro

Hello dear developer

I would like to ask, if it would be possible, that somebody create an indicator for FSB Pro, which includes the data of the Commitments of Traders Report published at

Or maybe is it possible to use the indicators of in FSB Pro?

I'm sure this would be the next big thing.

The CoT report refers to the trading positions of market participants subject to termination. The aim is to create transparency on the positions in the form of a listing of open interest rates, ie all open futures and options contracts. Every Friday, the shares are published, which are on a commercial conclusion on Tuesday evening. In this way, traders can guess the "positioning and intention" of large market participants.

Re: COT Indikator for FSB Pro

I wonder why you would want to have this and why you would say it will be the next big thing....
Please advise.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: COT Indikator for FSB Pro

The official Commitments of Traders Report shows the positioning of various dealer groups on the futures markets in the US, as they are published once a week by the CFTC, usually on Fridays at 9:30 pm CET. Due to their special collection and data depth, they offer a unique source of information in this form. The data collection department divides the traders into reportable and non-reporting traders. Disclosure of the motivation and business activities of the traders involved in the report also allows a subdivision into so-called commercial and non-commercial traders as well as other subgroups. In essence, commercial and non-commercial traders differ in that commercial traders are earning their money with the underlying itself and not with its price change, while non-commercial traders are trying to benefit from price changes.

The COT indicator represents a sentiment indicator
Commercials at the reporting date in relation to the positioning in the past (usually the last three years). A value of 100 signals the most bullish positioning, a value of 0 the most bearable positioning within this time period.

The positioning of the speculators can be interpreted as a so-called "hard" sentiment indicator. There are a variety of different ways to measure the mood of certain market participants against asset classes. In contrast to "soft" sentiment indicators, this is not a survey of the possible future behavior of market participants, but actual positions taken. This makes this much more representative for the actual market mood and enables conclusions to be drawn about the consequences of future price movements on the portfolios of various market participants.

It is true that commercial traders can not derive a "fair value" of an asset, but the behavior of the commercials gives at least an indication as to whether those market participants who work with the underlying every day are fair, overpriced or undervalued hold. Together with the speculative sentiment, this is a very useful information about the current characteristics of the respective market. With the help of the Commitment of Traders Reports, deep insights into the state of the underlying market can be gained. Especially in phases where the positions of some dealer groups reach extreme values, a trend becomes increasingly fragile and the probability of a trend change increases significantly. The weekly publication also enables a timely analysis of the market structure and the timely recognition of such cyclical turning points.

Yes, I am pretty familiar with COT data, thank you. however, you did not explain how you would use it and why it will be the next big thing.

Please excuse

I have thought, if it is possible to identify cyclic turning points by means of extreme values of the COT indicator, i think it would be interesting to set these as parameters for the generator. I think it would be the next big thing because so very reliable signals could be generated. But I do not know, maybe it does not work.
