Speculators' net long bets on U.S. dollar slip to 21-week low -CFTC, Reuters

Speculators' net long bets on the U.S. dollar fell to a 21-week low 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 $9.87 billion for the week ended Jan. 25, compared with a net long position of $12.59 billion for the prior 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.

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 greenback posted a net long of $10.71 billion, down from $13.03 billion a week earlier.

The dollar which rose 6.3% against a basket of currencies (DXY) in 2021, came under some selling pressure at the turn of year as investors fretted that much of the good news that had driven the rally in the U.S. currency was already priced in.

The dollar has recovered since then, helped by rising rate hike expectations and surging Treasury yields. On Friday, the dollar index was up more than 1% for the year.
