Agriculture’s OIV increased by 1.6% to 4,984,012 contracts in January. Meanwhile, money managers increased net long positions by 30.1% to 379,341 lots, largely because of increasing net length in corn, wheat and the soy complex.

Money managers decreased their net length positions slightly by 1.1% to 147,497 on the impact of warmerthan-average weather. Copper’s OIV increased by 9.2% m-o-m to 254,977 contracts in January. Money managers increased their net long position by 2.6% to 80,303 contracts on the continuing expansion in global manufacturing.
