Trade Stocks & Commodities with the Insiders: Secrets of the COT Report
November 5, 2005
Everyday, the true superpowers of the market influence the future price performance of various commodities through their buying and selling activities. These superpowers, more commonly known as "Commercials," are often household names-such as Pillsbury and General Mills if you're looking at natural resource commodities, or Chase Manhattan when it comes to financial commodities.
Whenever these large and powerful traders make a move, they must leave behind a paper trail, due to the federal law that requires Commercials to report their massive trading activities once every week. This valuable information is then disseminated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission through the Commitment of Traders (COT) report.
Now, for the first time, in Trade Stocks & Commodities with the Insiders, world-renowned trader Larry Williams reveals industry secrets that will help you align yourself with the billion-dollar traders and pools that move in and out of the marketplace each day. You'll be introduced to the best resource for achieving this goal--the COT--and learn exactly what this information means for you. Williams explains this reporting system in detail and lays out a plan that will allow you to maximize profits and manage downside risk by trading side by side with the largest commercial interests in the world.
Larry Williams has been following the smart money crowd for over thirty years, and with this guide, he'll show you who these people are and how to profit from their actions-whether you are interested in agricultural commodities such as soybeans or the new breed of financial commodities consisting of currencies, bonds, and stock market indices. While most market followers look at charts, Trade Stocks & Commodities with the Insiders will help you focus on the true market conditions that effect price change-large buying and selling as well as supply/demand pressure-which you'll be able to gauge each week with the COT report.
There is no master key that can unlock all the doors to successful price forecasting, but with Trade Stocks & Commodities with the Insiders as your guide, you'll discover how the proper interpretation of COT data can add substantial profits to your portfolio.
