Amid what looked like some position squaring ahead of the Fed and the Christmas holiday Monday and Tuesday, speculators, at least, piled into more USD longs. The only big changes is the swap around in NZD. Bitcoin shorts lightened up in the bounce but We still have never seen a net long in this contract. US bond shorts continue to bail from some record shorts.
