NEW YORK (Reuters) – Speculators raised their bullish bets on the U.S. dollar in the week to Feb. 19 to the largest position in four weeks, according to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the dollar’s net long position, derived from net positions of International Monetary Market speculators in the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc and Canadian and Australian dollars, was $23.81 billion.
