CFTC positioning update: Specs increase UST shorts further

CFTC data for the week ending November 21 indicates that large speculators have increased their overall short positions in US Treasury futures. This increase is primarily due to a heightened short position in the belly (5-year Treasuries), while short positions in the long-end (30-year Treasuries) have decreased.

Meanwhile, positioning in the S&P 500 Index (SPX) remained relatively neutral, and short positions in the Japanese Yen (JPY) continue to be at extreme levels.
