I haven't posted the numbers for a long time now... It's time to take a look at that now.
The Commitment of Traders report ( ) is published at the close of every Friday's trade and it always shows the Tuesday data.
The formula for Blees rating uses the Commercial Traders net contract holdings at the date of the current report.
We inserted the Blees rating into the .
The last Blees rating numbers (near 0) are showing that commercials are heavily shorting the gold market.
The commercial short position has been raising for a few weeks now. It was at 413.000 (!!!) last Tuesday. This is a horrible number.
I think on the 24th May the Blees will be above 10, so it's turning up from zero (Last Tuesday it was 3)
I noticed when the blees is turning down from 100 or turning up from zero the real decline/ rally is getting started.
This data/Blees rating numbers are crying for a correction. I doubt that most of the bulls are prepared the decline what these numbers are predicting. Everybody and his his dog plus his wife is short at the commercials....
My first post in January was the report as well which predicted the monster rally in gold:
