The COT Index is the difference between net speculative positioning and net commercial positioning measured. A blue colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bullish) with speculators selling and commercials buying. A red colored bar indicates that the difference in positioning is the greatest it has been in 52 weeks (bearish) with speculators buying and commercials selling. Non-commercials tend to be on the wrong side at the turn and commercials the correct side. Use of the index is covered closely in detail in my book.

Large speculators have flipped to a net long position (very small) after being net short since October 2012. Large speculators are trend followers and will catch the large move but get chopped up in sideways markets. Irrespective of multi-week pullbacks in Yen the massive shift in positioning is a clear change in behavior (which is seen in price of course too). For a shorter term look at sentiment check out SSI.
