Speculators' net long USD bets grow, Sterling shorts shrink -CFTC, Reuters



NEW YORK, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Speculators' net long bets on the U.S. dollar edged higher 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 position was $10.43 billion for the week ended Sept. 27, compared with a net long position of $10.23 billion last week.

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.

CFTC data also showed speculators' net short bets on the British pound shrank to 46,424 contracts, down from a net short position of 54,843 contracts, a week ago.

Sterling fell to a record low against the dollar on Monday, before recovering some ground to after the Bank of England said it would step in to calm the turbulence in the UK government bond market.

Japanese yen net shorts increased slightly in the latest week to 82,556 contracts, up from 81,280 contracts, the largest short position since early June. Among the major currencies, the yen has struggled the most against the dollar as the Bank of Japan remains the only central bank that is not in a tightening mode. The yen is down 20.5% for the year.
