Hi, thanks for your work. I've noticed that data are not completely the same as the cot report on http://www.cftc.gov/dea/futures/deacmesf.htm . Euro says non commercial 38171 and 93390 but on the chart is 37913 and 97267. It's almost the same but sometimes there are a few thousand of difference. Have I got wrong settings?

For intraday trading to avoid to have a fixed istogram, It should be very usefull to have a string on the main chart that tell COT values and the max and min of last n weeks

Honestly I'm not sure.
I should make a comparison of both data sources,
to be sure.
We have WeekEnd Data (data is updated once a week)
So that this difference is negligible.

Well, I don't find 4-5 thousands contracts so negligible since they are € 400-500 millions. By the way Cot data are always every weekend and I don't understand why there are 4-5 k of difference on Euro if data report are shown every saturday on the official COT website.
