Speculators lift US dollar longs; euro net shorts rise again-CFTC

Feb 6 (Reuters) - Speculators increased bets in favor of the
U.S. dollar in the latest week and pushed net shorts on the euro
to their largest since June 2012, according to data from the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission released on Friday.
    The value of the dollar's net long position expanded to
$45.82 billion in the week ended Feb. 3, from $44.28 billion the
 previous week. This was the sixth straight week that net long
dollars have hit at least $40 billion.
    Net euro short contracts, meanwhile, totaled 196,309,
equivalent to $26.28 billion, from 184,745 the previous week.
This week was the largest short bet on the euro in about 2-1/2
years.
    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.
