FX Positioning: Euro Long Positions Rose Before Dollar Rally

In the rest of G10, CAD (FXC) and JPY (FXY) both saw an increase in net shorts, with the loonie now having seen a full unwinding of its net long positions as global sentiment deteriorated and the USD (UUP) gained ground. CHF (FXF) saw a very wide change in positioning (-8.8% of open interest), oddly in a week where it was among the best G10 performers. This is another indication of how the positioning on the franc reported by the CFTC is not particularly accurate and very often shows wide swings that have no connection with the actual market sentiment on the currency.
