Prices had improved by last Tuesday's close to around 1.5160, and have improved further since then. Once again, position moves of the previous week continued, with Commercials adding considerably to their longs, but this time adding to shorts as well. Even taking this into account, on balance they moved longer. Small Specs reduced their longs while maintaining shorts. We can only repeat last week's comment: these figures continue to suggest further improvement by the Pound against the Dollar.
