US dollar position smallest since June-CFTC

Saturday, December 29, 2007

NEW YORK, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Currency speculators slashed
their bets against the dollar last week, again reducing the
value of their net short position to the smallest since June,
data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission showed on
Friday.

The short U.S. dollar position shrank to $8.5 billion
in the week to Dec. 24, compared with $11.03 billion in the
prior week.

The aggregate U.S. dollar position is derived from the net
positions of International Monetary Market speculators in yen,
euro, British pound, Swiss franc, Canadian and Australian
dollars.
