US Dollar COT Large Spectators Sentiment Vs UUP ETF

U.S. dollar net speculator positions edged lower to $15.29 billion last week

The latest data for the weekly Commitment of Traders (COT) report, released by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on Friday, showed that large traders and currency speculators just barely reduced their bullish bets for the U.S. dollar last week.

Non-commercial large futures traders, including hedge funds and large speculators, had an overall US dollar long position totaling $15.29 billion as of Tuesday April 25th, according to the latest data from the CFTC and dollar amount calculations by Reuters. This was a weekly decline of $-0.05 billion from the $15.34 billion total long position that was registered the previous week, according to the Reuters calculation (totals of the U.S. dollar contracts against the combined contracts of the euro, British pound, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, Canadian dollarand the Swiss franc).

The aggregate U.S. dollar speculator position continues to show a very muted weekly change for the fourth consecutive week. Weekly changes have remained under $1 billion ever since a $-3.17 billion decline on March 28th. The overall aggregate bullish level continues to hover right around $15 billion for the fifth straight week.

*COT Report: The weekly commitment of traders report summarizes the total trader positions for open contracts in the futures trading markets. The CFTC categorizes trader positions according to commercial hedgers (traders who use futures contracts for hedging as part of the business), non-commercials (large traders who speculate to realize trading profits) and nonreportable traders (usually small traders/speculators).

The Commitment of Traders report is published every Friday by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and shows futures positions data that was reported as of the previous Tuesday (3 days behind).

Each currency contract is a quote for that currency directly against the U.S. dollar, a net short amount of contracts means that more speculators are betting that currency to fall against the dollar and a net long position expect that currency to rise versus the dollar.
