The history files have been error checked and cleaned up. It is recommended that you download new history files, which current (updated through February 28).

That said, This week’s COT data was tabulated on Tuesday, February 25. A lot of water has gone over the dam since, affecting trader positions in many markets and making this week’s COT report of questionable forecasting value. It is not unusual to see traders close profitable positions to cover losses elsewhere. We cannot assume that any market’s report escaped this week’s volatility unaffected.
