The error involved 10.6K contracts of euro longs when they were really short. This week, both specs switched to the long side of the euro.
Last week, the biggest open position was short 117.2K of the Japanese yen, but specs took the position down to 107.2K this week. That makes a long position of 113.5K in the Australian the biggest spec position.
Specs continue to favor the long side of the commodity currencies and added to those positions. The total spec long the Australian, Canadian and New Zealand Dollar and USD short has gone up to 238.1K. This is their biggest position in the last three months.
Please note the Swiss Franc comments. Since the end of the cut-off date for this report, those long the SF and short the euro have had to deal with some major adversity.
