CFTC Leveraged Money Positioning Update for the Week to Jan09

Key Positions/Changes:

  • In the early days of the year, leveraged money significantly reduced its long positions in USD, driven by escalating bets on a Federal Reserve rate cut.

  • Ahead of the ETF launches, leveraged money intensified its short positions in Bitcoin, reaching record highs.

  • In the realm of US equities, leveraged money modestly decreased its short positions in SPX and Russell Futures, as both large and small caps experienced a pause following a nine-week winning streak.

  • Despite long-end US Treasuries largely maintaining their recent gains, leveraged money's short positions in US Treasury futures remained near record levels.
