Leveraged funds, real money FX positioning

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

Each week ANZ produce their report on the CFTC data

ANZ take an approach I've summarised before, here: 

For the most recent data (was out Friday late US time):
Positioning, in brief:

Leveraged funds were net USD sellers for the second straight week
  • Funds pared back their net long USD position
  • The dollar's price action following the cut-off date suggests a further reduction of long dollar positions
Dollar selling by leveraged funds was largely broad based in the week except against JPY. Funds raised their overall net yen short positions 
  • Asset managers also added to their net shorts
EUR saw the highest net buying in the week by leveraged funds, trimming their overall net short positions for the third week
  • Asset managers however, turned net sellers after three straight weeks of net buying, trimming their net long EUR position
Funds extended their bullishness on the GBP in line with its strong price action
  • Funds trimmed their net GBP short
  • Asset managers too turned net buyers of GBP in the week, paring back their overall net shorts
