EUR signals showed Increased CTA interest as net long levels rose to long 83% from 75% on Tuesday. NZD and AUD interest increased slightly, now sitting at net long 8% and net short 25% respectively (from flat and -33%). JPY (34%) and GBP (75%) signals were unchanged from Tuesday.

In Asia, the desk flags that local model accounts reduced IDR longs last week, indicating that the CTA signal shift in IDR may not yet be fully positioned in the market (net 25% long last week on net long 67% this week).

In Latin America, the CTA signals continue to show Interest In BRL and MXN. BRL now screens net long 75% (from 67% Tuesday), while MXN positioning remains solid at net long 67%. The desk has seen model accounts selling USD to buy BRL and MXN this week in line with the triggers the team has seen.
