CFTC Position Watch: GBP bears feel pain as Pound rallies back above 1.30

Market Analysis /
Milan Cutkovic / 17 Sep 2018

The latest CFTC report shows only minor changes in speculative FX positioning.

Speculators increased their EUR longs positions by 3k, bringing net positioning to 11k long. EUR bulls are feeling a bit more optimistic following the bounce off 1.15 support. However, the recovery looks fragile, and it would take a clear break above 1.18 for short-term techs to turn bullish again.
