    June 19 (Reuters) - Speculators slashed bullish bets on the
U.S. dollar for the first time in four weeks, pushing net longs
on the greenback to the lowest in 11 months, according to
Reuters calculations and data from the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission released on Friday.
    The value of the dollar's net long position fell to $23.82
billion in the week ended June 16, from $34.70 billion the
previous week.
    To be long in a currency is to take a view it will rise,
while being short is a bet its value will decline.
    The dollar has wobbled again in June, with the dollar index
 down nearly 3 percent for the month.
    Net short positions on the euro, meanwhile, slid further to
89,357 contracts, from 137,974 contracts the previous week. 
This week's net euro short was smallest since late July.
    The Reuters calculation for the aggregate U.S. dollar
position is derived from net positions of International Monetary
speculators in the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc and the
Canadian and Australian dollars.
