NEW YORK, July 29 - Speculators' net bearish bets on U.S. 10-year Treasury note futures rose this week, according to the latest Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday. The amount of speculators' bearish, or short, positions in 10-year Treasury futures exceeded bullish, or long, positions by 199,860 contracts on July 26, according to the CFTC's latest Commitments of Traders data. A week earlier, speculators held 108,704 net short positions in 10-year T-note futures, the largest number of net short positions since June 21, when there were 228,184. The increase in short positions was a day before the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 75 basis points for the second time in two months. The number of short positions this week in two-year Treasury notes, seen as an indicator of future inflation expectations, was 89,864, the largest since 102,118 short positions on June 28.
