UPDATE 1-Speculators raise net long dollar bets in final week of 2016

(Adds data, table, analyst comment, paragraphs 2-7)

    Dec 30 (Reuters) - Speculators raised net long bets on the
U.S. dollar to $24.17 billion this week, increasing their
positions from $22.45 billion last week, according to data from
the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and calculations by
Reuters.
    Net long bets on the dollar fell last week for the first
time since October, but rebounded as currency speculators again
took bullish positions on the future of the greenback in the
last trading week of the year.
    Analysts told Reuters they expect the dollar's strength to
continue in 2017 with the greenback set to end this year up more
than 3.5 percent against a basket of major currencies.
    However, a good deal of uncertainty remained about what the
incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump will
bring and how much dollar appreciation it will tolerate.
    "Much depends on how the Trump presidency and the Chinese
economy work out," said Marshall Gittler, chief market analyst
for retail broker FX Primus. "In general, I expect the dollar to
continue to gain."
    Speculators also raised net short contracts on the Japanese
yen for the ninth straight week to 87,009 contracts, the
most since August 2015.
    Net short contracts on the euro were reduced
substantially, with speculators holding the lowest number of net
shorts on the continental currency since July.
    The Reuters calculation for the aggregate U.S. dollar
position is derived from net positions of International Monetary
speculators in the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc and
Canadian and Australian dollars.
