NEW YORK, June 3 (Reuters) - Speculators' net long bets on the U.S. dollar fell to a 5-week low, according to calculations by Reuters and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net long dollar position was $14.71 billion for the week ended May 31. Last week, speculators' net long position stood at $17.65 billion.

U.S. dollar positioning was derived from net contracts of International Monetary Market speculators in the Japanese yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc, and Canadian and Australian dollars. (Reporting by Saqib Iqbal Ahmed Editing by Chris Reese)
