        One thing worth noting is NYMEX volume was 2.2M last week. The highest in 8 months!

                    just curious at your confidence level in how the 'shorts' and 'longs' and MM are classified in the open interest reports. I have never paid any attention to them because I know of funds who basically just trade being classified as end users or commercials in the past and once I saw that I had no confidence in that data. It told me nothing.

                          Net shorts went down and the price of NG went down. I guess they unravelled these positions in an orderly manner ?

                              If I never hear about the COT report ever again, it will be too soon.

                                Yes, I find the COT report to be very deceiving. Most of the large specs are hiding in the commercial category due to loop-holes in their brokerage acct applications.
