Net Position Changes Data Reports
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced the release of two new data sets that add further transparency to commodity futures markets. The new reports, entitled “Large Trader Net Position Changes” and “Trading Account Net Position Changes,” build on the CFTC transparency program initiatives. The data and explanatory notes, as well as average values for both measures, can be found on our website. The CFTC is providing this data to the public on a one-time basis.
We invite public comment on the usefulness of these reports and ways to improve them. If additional resources become available, the CFTC may be able to report the data on a routine basis.
