3 Top Smart Money Securities

Besides providing and consolidating robust fundamental analysis for retail traders to have on-hand, the A1 EdgeFinder can be especially helpful in the realm of sentiment analysis. By utilizing the software’s sentiment analysis features, traders can routinely keep up with how other traders, both institutional and retail, are allocating their capital. This matters a great deal because price action within financial markets is generated by supply and demand, which means that monitoring the aggregated demand of institutional or ‘smart money’ traders (who often have the most capital to work with) offers valuable insight into price action within these markets. With this context in mind, let's explore 3 top smart money securities as presented to us by the EdgeFinder’s Smart Money Tracker, which gathers and parses the latest Commitments of Traders (COT) data.

Despite the months-long downtrend in oil prices, many oil fundamentals remain strong. Supply is still more limited due to multilateral Russian sanctions and OPEC+ politicking, and global demand is set to spike as winter arrives.

2) USD – 72.9% Long, 27.1% Short

Although the US Dollar Index has fallen in recent months as the Federal Reserve seems inclined to reduce rate hike size, their net hawkishness remains as economic overheating persists, which reflects in this overall USD bullishness. (USD/CHF is a stand-in here, as there is no DXY chart)

3) Gold – 68.58% Long, 31.42% Short

3 Top Smart Money Securities
While Gold's value has struggled due to the Federal Reserve's competitive rate hikes and shrinking of the money supply, it remains a safe haven asset in a global financial environment where fiat currencies enable rampant money printing.
