Daily COT Signals
Andy Waldock’s COT Signals program is a discretionary trading methodology that distills a complex, proprietary analysis of the Commitments of Traders report into a user-friendly worksheet that helps you determine when to buy, sell, or stay out of investments in the futures markets.
The Daily COT Signals discretionary worksheet provides our most sensitive trigger for potential reversals within the commodity futures markets. The result is a higher volume of trades held for a shorter period of time – often just three to five days.
Like the Weekly COT Signals, the Daily tool clearly indicates which markets are developing conflict between the commercial and speculative traders. This is shown by the active contract, its expiration month, the commercial traders’ momentum, and whether the underlying market is overbought or, oversold against the commercial traders’ momentum. Based on this, the worksheet includes a simple “buy” or “sell” recommendation along with the protective stop price.
We always trade with resting protective stops in the market. While this can’t ensure that your losses are limited, it provides a valid offset technique the vast majority of the time.
The Daily trading strategy is particularly effective when combined with the signals generated by the larger time frame provided in the Weekly COT Signals. In addition, both the Daily and Weekly COT signals are subject to seasonal bias within the commodity and ETF markets. While they aren’t always completely in sync, tracking the interplay of seasonality and the commercial traders’ behavior is a key component of our seasonal strategy. For that reason, we usually recommend you subscribe to the Seasonal COT Signals in conjunction with the Daily tool.
