Difference between net spec positions on US equities & rates - this indicator is derived by the difference between total CFTC spec positions in US equity futures (in $bn) scaled by open interest (in $bn) minus a duration weighted composite of UST futures and scaled by open interest.

The US rates series is duration weighted aggregate of the UST2YR, UST5YR, UST10YR, UST long bond & the UST Ultra long bond futures.
