  • Prior report
Net positions remained relatively modest with the exception of the long in the EUR. Although still large at 156k, that position is down from a record long level of 212K from the 1st week of September. 

The EUR position turn positive in the middle of March. The price peaked on September 1 which corresponded with the largest long position as well. Send the position as 100 lower along with the price of the EUR.  So in reality, the net position has been congruent with the markets movements. 

The next largest position is long 18K JPY and short 18K in the CAD.
