Dollar Wobbles But Hedge Funds Keep Upping Bullish Bets: Chart

(Bloomberg) -- Hedge funds are finally making some inroads with their bullish U.S. dollar bets and are continuing to up their stakes. With the greenback breaking out of its recent trading range last week, speculators increased their net long positions on the American currency to the highest since January 2017, according to the latest data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
