U.S. Dollar Index dollar net jump since June 2019

NEW YORK (Reuters) – FX SIGNALS _ U.S. dollar net longs in the latest week surged to their highest level in more than two years, according to Reuters calculations and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net long dollar position was $22.89 billion in the week ended Oct. 5, compared with $16.37 billion in the previous week. U.S. dollar positioning has been net long for 12 straight weeks after being net short for 16 months.


U.S. dollar positioning was derived from net contracts of International Monetary Market speculators in the Japanese yen, euro, British pound and Swiss franc, as well as the Canadian and Australian dollars.Forex Signals – EURJPY Price Break at $120 Supply Level

In a broader measure of dollar positioning, which includes net contracts on the New Zealand dollar, Mexican peso, Brazilian real and Russian rouble, the greenback posted a net long position of $22.535 billion this week, from $15.33 billion previously.

The dollar has been on a tear since the September 21-22 Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting that suggested a possible tapering of the Fed’s asset purchases starting November this year and ending in June 2022.

Tapering tends to be dollar-positive because the Fed would be buying less debt assets, which means that there will be less dollars in circulation, making the currency more valuable.


Since the September meeting, the dollar index has risen more than 1%.

The dollar pulled back, however, on Friday after an underwhelming U.S. non-farm payrolls report. Data showed U.S. non-farm payrolls increased by 194,000 jobs last month, compared with forecasts for 500,000 new jobs. But data for August was revised to show 366,000 jobs created instead of the previously reported 235,000 positions. Forex Signals EURUSD Price Hits Resistance

“U.S. inflation data released next Wednesday may add to evidence that inflationary pressures are proving less ‘transitory’ than generally anticipated,” wrote Jonathan Petersen, markets economist, at Capital Economics in its latest research note.

In other contracts, euro positioning turned short in the latest week with net short contracts of 22,334, from a net long position of 872 the previous week. The euro remains a laggard among G10 currencies, weighed down by the European Central bank’s dovish stance.

In the cryptocurrency market, bitcoin net shorts totaled 1,518 contracts in the week ended Oct. 5, from net short contracts of 883 the previous week. This week’s net short contracts in bitcoin were the largest since late July.

That said, bitcoin on Friday soared to a five-month high of $56,168, boosted by continued institutional demand, gaining some legitimacy among investors.  Bitcoin climbs to highest in nearly two weeks
