NEW YORK, April 21 (Reuters) - Speculators lifted bullish bets on the U.S. dollar for a second straight week, according to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.
The value of the dollar's net long position totaled $15.34 billion in the week ended April 18, up from $15.04 billion the previous week. Sterling net short contracts, meanwhile, fell to their lowest since early March. (Reporting by Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss, editing by G Crosse)
