    Sept 15 (Reuters) - Speculators raised their short bets
against the U.S. dollar for the fourth consecutive week, with
the value of contracts against the greenback increasing to
$11.57 billion in latest week, the largest since January 2013,
according to data from the Commodity futures Trading Commission
calculated by Reuters.
    The value of the dollar's net short position, derived from
net positions of International Monetary Market speculators in
the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc and Canadian and
Australian dollars for the week ending Sept. 12.
    Net long contracts on the Mexican peso rose to the highest
level since May 2013. 
    The dollar appreciated early in the week, bouncing back from
last week's trading that pushed the euro to its highest level
against the greenback in 2-1/2 years and sterling at its highest
versus the dollar in more than a year.
    Market participants are expecting the European Central Bank
to announce an unwinding to its massive quantitative easing
program in the near future. Policymakers at the Bank of England
this week also suggested they may raise the country's overnight
interest rates from current historically low levels.
    Investors will next look to Wednesday's Federal Open Market
Committee meeting, in which the Fed is expected to start
reducing its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. There is, however,
zero expectation for an interest rate hike.
    "The Fed's tone and stance during next week's FOMC statement
and press conference will play a major role in setting
expectations for interest rates, the Fed's balance sheet
reduction plans, and the U.S. dollar going forward," said James
Chen, head of research at Forex.com in Bedminster, New Jersey.
    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.
