  • Prior week’s report 
  • Highlights for the current week:

    • All the major currencies remain short and the dollar long
    • The JPY is the largest short, but little changed from last week. The USDJPY moved lower into the close this week (against the speculative position).  A further erosion of the USDJPY to the downside, could lead to shorts covering. The short is the largest short position since February 2018
    • AUD remained short and saw a little squeeze of the AUDUSD off a floor at 0.70405. 
    • The NZDUSD also squeezed higher against the short position in the currency.
