CFTC to Expand COT Data

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission [3] has started including more detailed classifications in its weekly Commitments of Traders (COT) [4] reports, according to the Brock Report. The agency's expanded COT reports will break down traders into four categories: producers and merchants, swap dealers, managed funds and “other” market participants. One drawback is that the COT reports won't distinguish between commercial traders and speculators, Brock Report says.
