CFTC COT Index is a percentile of net speculative positioning in natural gas measured over the last 3 years. 

This indicator converts net positions (commitments) to a 0% -100% scale. It reflects where the current net position ranks as a percentage of its range over the last three years. A reading close to 0 suggests that a bottom is forming and a reading close to 100 suggests that a top is forming. Use this indicator to watch for extremes reading in the natural gas market. Readings of 95 and higher as well as 5 and lower indicate a potential market extreme. This is when the probability of a reversal is higher and a trader may start consider taking a contrarian position.

The indicator is calculated using the data for NYMEX natural gas, ICE natural gas, NYMEX Henry Hub swaps and NYMEX Henry Hub penultimate swaps.
