Greenback To Yen At Highest Level In Six Months

The greenback rose against Japanese Yen to 101.91 yen on Monday, its highest level in six months. The yen is one of this year's worst performing currencies against the dollar, with its year-to-date losses at about 18 percent. That's just after the Indonesian rupiah, which has slid just over 20 percent against the greenback.

Currency speculators have ramped up bets on the dollar strengthening against other currencies to their highest level in two months, the latest sign of bullish sentiment towards the U.S. currency making a comeback. The value of the dollar's net long position rose to $17.10 billion in the week ending November 19, up from $14.46 billion the previous week and the highest since the week ending September 10, data released from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission late on Friday showed. Speculators hold the largest amount of long-dollar, short- yen positions in six years. Expectations for an unwinding of U.S. monetary stimulus in the next few months have renewed interest in the dollar after the currency fell in October. And the dollar's firm break above 100 yen last week has encouraged dollar bulls.
