Futures Trading based on COT Report W20-20

by Michael Chechnev | May 17, 2020 | Trading week results

Hello Insiders,

Today is Sunday and we traditionally summarize the last trading week and prepare our plan for the next trading week.

This week we didn’t close a position, by the end of the week we came up with long positions in Cotton and Gasoline.


COTTON (open position)

SetUp to buy for Cotton was published in the weekly trading plan W16. Position was opened May, 1.
This position has gone through a correction and now has an unrealized profit of $825.

On the weekly chart, we see that the COT index is not discharged. Most likely the upward movement will continue, but will be slow. After the correction, the price has been recovering for a very long time.

If we look at the indicator of supply and demand, we can see that there is a premium. This is a bullish indicator, but something is holding back the price.

Our further strategy here is to wait for the result of trading on Monday and Tuesday, then make a decision. If nothing changes at the beginning of the week, then we will close the position.

GASOLINE (open position)

Long Gasoline position was opened on this Friday. The entry was based on a setup which formed after analyzing the COT report published of May, 8.

This is a correction deal. It is against the trend, so the position is open with reduced risk. The entry was through a rollback on the % R indicator. This is a classic pullback and we were good at getting into position. The position was opened through contract N (July).

There is good bullish accumulation, the indicator Supply and Demand is up and a premium may appear in the coming days.

Position is kept.


On the weekly chart of the CRB index we see that it is being restored. Momentum break a downward movement. This is a bullish signal. Next week is also seen to be growing.

That’s all about our trading in this week.
Next, we are moving to planning trading week 21.

Risk Disclosure: Trading in futures, forex and CFD's involves a high degree of risk and is not suitable for every investor. An investor may possibly lose more than the capital deposited. Only risk capital should be used for trading, or parts of risk capital. Risk capital is money, the loss of which does not change the financial situation or does not affect life. Performance achieved in the past is not a guarantee of future profits.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. The account results presented may vary significantly in gains and losses. One of the limitations of hypothetical results is that they are generated by known historical data. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk - no hypothetical track record can represent the financial risks of actual trading. For example, there is a possibility that trading will be suspended or cancelled if losses are incurred, this can greatly change the actual results. Furthermore, there are numerous other factors that cannot be fully accounted for in hypothetical performance when implementing a trading program, and thus can affect actual results.
