As you may know, since the US government shutdown the CFTC stopped releasing the Institutional position data to us on the Friday of every week. Yesterday the #CFTC released it's planned schedule to release the missing 6 weeks position data. Starting this coming Friday February 1st, 2019.
Here's what they had to say:
Washington, DC – The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Market Intelligence Branch of the Division of Market Oversight today announced an updated release schedule for CFTC market data reports that were delayed during the lapse in appropriations. The goal of the new report schedule is to provide market participants with data as quickly as possible, given the agency’s resource constraints.
During the lapse in appropriations, the CFTC suspended publication of the weekly Commitments of Traders report (COT), the weekly Cotton On Call report (COC), and the monthly Bank Participation Report (BPR). As the agency resumes its normal operations, the CFTC will start publishing these reports again with the schedule below. Any changes to these dates will be announced on CFTC’s website.
COT: The last COT report was published on December 21, 2018. Reports going forward from that date will be published in chronological order beginning with the report previously scheduled for release on Friday, December 28, 2018 (based on data from Monday, December 24, 2018). The CFTC expects to publish this report on Friday, February 1, 2019. After this, the CFTC expects to publish one report on Tuesday and another on Friday of each week until the reports are current as per the normal schedule.
My plan will be to include both Tuesday and Fridays data in one Araujo Report until we are all caught up. Hopefully this 3 week reopen of the government will be extended and we won't need to be inconvenienced like this again!
