Speculators increase net long U.S. dollar bets in latest week



Jan 14 (Reuters) - Speculators increased their net long U.S. dollar positions in the latest week, according to calculations by Reuters and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net long dollar was $19.34 billion in the week ended Jan. 11, compared with a net long of $18.87 billion the previous week.

The Reuters calculation for the aggregate U.S. dollar position is derived from net positions in the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc, and Canadian and Australian dollars.

In a wider measure of dollar positioning NETUSDALL= that includes net contracts on the New Zealand dollar, Mexican peso, Brazilian real and Russian rouble, the U.S. dollar posted a net long position of $19.91 billion, compared with a net long of $19.48 billion a week earlier.
