At least for the options, NYMEX OI was about 50% higher 9/4 than on the ICE
(just to make it comparable to #5)

I've found something here CFTC Commitments of Traders Report - NYME (Futures Only) but it seems a bit odd to me that WTI Crude has 43k Long and 72k Short possitions (Commercial) and Brent 79k Long and 13k Short. Should not be the price expectation similar?
I am also a bit confused by this report: 321energy :: Most Recent Commitment of Traders Reports from the CFTC, which looks like the previous one but the numbers are different.
Interesting seems to me also this link: https://www.quandl.com/data/CFTC/CL_F_ALL-Commitment-of-Traders-Crude-Oil-Light-Sweet-Futures-Only. If I read this one correct, Long possitions of Producers/Merchants is cca 10% more then Short possitions and Open Interest from June is incresing.

I am using NinjaTrader platform, how can I monit "big players" if I would like to trade on their's side?

Thank a lot for your comments!

ad Brent vs WTI: Contrary positions are quite normal when the spread between Brent and WTI is high - for those who have the capacities physical arbitrage is possible.

ad CoT: Take the official numbers; everything else is add-on/interpretation.

ad NT: If you can't live with the CoT lag, buy a data stream that tags Crude Level 2 with the ECNs and analyze it according to your own needs. Esp for the ICE that's no bargain ...

Check to see if platform provides it. Support maybe able to help. Some platforms do.
Reading it is a different matter

Ok, so if I read it right, there is 2x more commercials in Short possitions then in Long as to 1st Semptember at Crude Oil, Light Sweet. My question will be perhaps silly, but to what belongs that Crude Oil, Light Sweet? I tought there severe kinds of oil (WTI, Brent, Canadian HVY, Dubai, ...).

perhaps folks have already given an answer. Not sure if this helps. If not ignore as this is paid (https://PINNACLEDATA2.COM/) which typically i use "IDX DB" for longer term analysis. However I do not do COT and as pointed perhaps COT data is available elsewhere better.

There are several grades of crude oil; for a primer see

Is the only benefit of pinnacledata before official CoT reports daily base? Last report at CoT is from 1st Semptember, are reports published biweekly?

Yes, I know there are various kinds of oil, but what I would expect from them is some degree of mutual price correlation. Majority customers can substitute one kind for another onewhich really neccessary, don't they?

In the report is part of oil:

Why WTI and Brent Crude Oil is at opposite side of long/short possitions. What does it mean "Swap" and "Last Day" in the report?
