UPDATE 1-U.S. dollar net longs fall to five-week low-CFTC, Reuters data

 (Adds comment, table, market details)

    NEW YORK, April 7 (Reuters) - Speculators further reduced
bullish bets on the U.S. dollar, pushing net longs to their
lowest level since late February,  according to Commodity
Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday and
calculations by Reuters.
    The value of the dollar's net long position totaled $14.67
billion in the week ended April 4, down from $15.27 billion the
previous week. Investors have reduced long dollar bets for a
second straight week and Friday's net long dollar positioning
was a five-week low.
    It has been an uncertain few weeks for the U.S. dollar,
starting when President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans pulled
their bill to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system due to a
shortage of votes.
    Investors were concerned that after the healthcare turmoil,
the Trump administration would not be able pass the tax reforms
that analysts believe would have a significant impact on the
economy.
    "The Trump administration has struggled to recapture the
optimism of the post-election victory when the pro-growth
policies were announced, and so far has not delivered," said
Alfonso Esparza, senior currency analyst at OANDA in Toronto.
That has weighed on the dollar.
    The healthcare debacle in Washington was followed by the
Federal Reserve minutes of last month's monetary policy meeting
which showed an internal debate on inflation and growth that has
raised doubts about the Fed's pace of monetary tightening.
    Investors still see two more interest rate rises this year,
a far cry from the four hikes being priced in at the beginning
of the year. 
    Capping a turbulent week for the dollar were the U.S. air
strikes on Syria and a U.S. nonfarm payrolls report
that badly missed expectations.
    "Expect the market to remain very nervous after Trump's
missile attack on Syria, with fundamentals taking a back seat
while investor anxiety remains high," said Esparza
    Net shorts on the Japanese yen, meanwhile, fell to 45,800
contracts, the smallest since December.
    The Reuters calculation for the aggregate U.S. dollar
position is derived from net positions of International Monetary
Market speculators in the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc
and Canadian and Australian dollars.
