IMM Report: Investors Flipped To Large EUR Longs, Doubled CAD Shorts

#33
Scotiabank FX Strategy Research notes that data from the latest IMM report (covering up to Tuesday May 9 & were released Friday May 12) showed that speculative accounts flipped a small net EUR short last week to a large 24k contract net long which is the first net long EUR position since 2014.

On the GBP front, ScotiaFX notes that investors continued their short covering via slashing their position by nearly USD3bn from last week.

On CAD front, ScotiaFX notes that investors virtually doubled the size of the bearish net bet on the CAD over the May 2 week to a record USD6.2b, beating the previous peak short bet in the CAD from 2007.

"The 2007 experience shows that the CAD continued to fall even as IMM investors started to cover CAD shorts," ScotiaFX notes.
