NEW YORK Feb 3 Speculators reduced bullish bets
on the U.S. dollar for a fourth straight week, as net longs fell
to their lowest since late October, according to data from the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission released on Friday and
calculations by Reuters.
The value of the dollar's net long position totaled $18.47
billion in the week ended Jan. 31, down from $20.04 billion the
previous week. CFTC data also showed that net shorts on the
Japanese yen fell to their lowest since early December.
