Open and Short Interest in the ES market

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by daydreaming, Jun 30, 2003.

  1. Does anyone look at the Open Interest and Short Interest trading the SP500 E-minis? Any recommendation on how to use these two?

    Aren't the number of contracts for the OI and the Short Interest the same? ;) Or, are you referring to the COT?
  3. With Open Interest, I mean new contracts entered. With Short Interest, the percentage of people who are short.

    Number of Short Contracts = Number of Long Contracts

    I think you would be better to examine COT.
