Speculators trim short dollar bets -CFTC, Reuters

·1 min read

NEW YORK, Dec 18 (Reuters) - U.S. dollar net short positioning fell in the latest week for the first time in four weeks, according to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net short dollar position was $26.56 billion in the week ended Dec. 15, from net shorts of $29.02 billion the previous week.

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