Small Specs., Large Specs., & Commercial Entities
Display the market activity of the small speculators.
Small Speculators are considered to be the individual investors, generally traders like you and me, or what is known as the “retail trader.” Investors who trade their own money, for their own benefit.
Small Speculators within in the Track ‘n Trade COT Plug-in are indicated below the chart in the default color of green.

Notice that there are actually more short positions during this obvious up-trend than their are long positions.
