Speculative U.S. 10-year T-note net longs hit 2-month high -CFTC

NEW YORK, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Speculators’ net bullish bets on U.S. 10-year Treasury note futures rose earlier this week to a two-month peak, as worries about rising tension between North Korea and United States fed safe-haven demand for longer-dated U.S. government debt, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The amount of speculators’ bullish, or long, positions in 10-year Treasury futures exceeded bearish, or short, positions by 283,719 contracts on Aug. 29, according to the CFTC’s latest Commitments of Traders data. A week earlier, speculators held 261,245 net long positions in 10-year T-note futures. (Reporting by Richard Leong; Editing by David Gregorio)
