Prices have fallen, but only slightly. Commercials added to longs, but added slightly more to shorts, moving towards a more normal share of the (increased) total open interest. Small Specs reduced longs and added to shorts, but not to a significant extent. These figures suggest, if anything, that the current minor downtrend should continue.
