    March 24 (Reuters) - Speculators' net bearish bets on U.S.

agenda, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commission data
released on Friday.
    The amount of speculators' bearish, or short, positions in
10-year Treasury futures exceeded bullish, or long, positions by
100,354 contracts on March 21, according to the CFTC's latest
Commitments of Traders data.
    A week earlier, speculators held 194,392 net short positions
