UPDATE 1-Net dollar longs fall for 2nd week, euro shorts up -CFTC, Reuters

(Adds details, table)
    Jan 30 (Reuters) - Speculators reduced bets in favor of the
U.S. dollar in the latest week and propelled net shorts on the
euro to their highest level since June 2012, according to data
from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission released on
Friday.
    The value of the dollar's net long position slipped to
$44.28 billion in the week ended Jan. 27, from $46.22 billion
the previous week. Net dollar longs declined for a second
consecutive week.
    That said, it was the fifth straight week that net long
dollars have hit at least $40  billion.
    To be long a currency is to take a view it will rise, while
being short is a bet its value will decline.
    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,
Canadian and Australian dollars.
    Net euro short contracts, meanwhile, totaled 184,745,
equivalent to $26.1 billion. That was the highest bet against
the euro in 2-1/2 years.
    The European Central Bank announced last Thursday a
quantitative easing program that called for monthly purchases of
60 billion euros in euro zone bonds. But investors had been
shorting the euro in the run-up to the ECB announcement,
resulting in a 9 percent drop in the currency over a two-month
period.
    Net shorts in the Swiss franc, on the other hand, further
contracted to 7,373 contracts, the smallest in 1-1/2 months.
    The decline in franc net shorts was a reaction to the Swiss
National Bank's removal of the three-year old cap on the euro
against the Swiss unit two weeks ago. This means that the SNB
will no longer be able to hold massive inflows to the Swiss
franc from investors who have come see the currency as a haven
from geopolitical and economic uncertainty.
