Speculators lift net long U.S. dollar bets to largest since early August -CFTC, Reuters data

NEW YORK, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Speculators' net long positioning on the U.S. dollar rose in the latest week to its highest since early August, according to calculations by Reuters and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net long dollar position climbed to $16.18 billion in the week ended Sept. 6, from $14.21 billion the previous week, CFTC data showed.

Yen net shorts, on the other hand, increased in the latest week to 58,189 contracts, the largest since late July. (Reporting by Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss)
