Pork Bellies And The COT Index by Scott W. Barrie

When presented with sentiment data, you'll need to know when to follow the crowd or be a contrarian. In our continuing look at using the COT index to predict market direction for commodities, here's a study on the COT report as an indicator for trading pork bellies.

Using the July corn contract on Chicago Board of Trade as the basis for our study, we determined how accurate the various classes of traders are in speculating about the future direction of the corn market during specific conditions. We tied the accuracy of the trader classifications (commercial hedgers, large speculators and small speculators) to the natural production and consumption cycles of corn.
