Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Where can I find the information on the current short and long positions?

On Bloomberg I sometimes see charts that show the total positions short and long for the CL, the ES, etc.

Is this information that is publicly available? and if so, where do I get it?

The Open Interest Data is available almost anywhere. That will show you how many current open contracts there are.

The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) also publish weekly Commitment of Traders (COT) Reports that show what the long and short position of commercials vs non-commercial vs small-traders. I suspect this is what you are referring to.
