Financial markets weekly overview. Trade list for September 18 — 24

Еженедельный обзор отчетов СОТ и статистики CFTC. Торговый лист

We make up a weekly medium-term trade list based on CFTC reports and technical analysis.

The table below provides a description of the technical condition of the market on the most popular financial instruments, as well as information on the large speculators’ actions according to the last COT reports and the previous period.

If you want to use CFTC reports in your trading practice, you should understand that for an objective assessment of the situation it’s not enough to know the data of the last report. The dynamic is more important, in other words, comparing the statistics of large speculators’ actions in the current period with the previous one, so we publish both values in the table.

Note that the arrow direction gives us information about the large speculators’ actions (buying or selling) relative to the asset specified in the first column. For example, for CHF, the up arrow () indicates that COT net position indicator is rising, namely CHF is being bought, but not USDCHF.

Conclusions

September is one of the most active trading periods of the year when strong price movements take place. For this reason, almost all assets can be interesting on timeframes under Daily. In terms of medium-term trading, financial instruments with the correction close to completion on the Daily timeframe and with potentially the most promising risk-reward ratio are AUDNZD and NZDJPY.

Gold, silver and AUDUSD are less interesting, but in the near future they can also become noteworthy depending on the depth of the market correction.

Other financial instruments in the trade list may be also interesting, but in these markets pullback signals on the Daily timeframe are likely to occur no earlier than a week.
