Key Quotes

"Shifts in sentiment were biased against the USD following the Summers resignation and heading into Wednesday’s FOMC, with the aggregate long USD position halving to $10.7bn from $21.7bn the previous week."

"AUD, EUR and GBP saw the largest swings — driven primarily by rising gross longs — hinting toward rising bullish sentiment. Most of the majors have moved away from their most extreme bearish levels observed over the past year, with the exception of NZD and MXN."
