The commercial traders in the Dollar Index added to their short positions by a total of 3,792 contracts and went long an additional 156, for a NET increase in their current short position of 3,636 contracts. They are currently short 59,023 contracts and long a total of 6,061. A nearly 10 to 1 ratio of strong handed sellers.

Open interest is currently 69,024 contracts, which is an increase of 2,971 contracts from the prior report which to me is a sign of rampant speculation since price continues to make new highs in the face of continued commercial selling.

Best Buys are the Singapore Dollar and the Mexican Peso
