    Key Quotes

    "An unexpectedly dovish BoE and impressive US payrolls translated to the biggest liquidation of sterling longs since our recording began in 2007."

    "Our proxy positioning indicators showed that up to half of the GBP longs have been liquidated, most of this versus the USD rather than the Euro."

    "While asset managers now appear to be flat, the leveraged community likely continues to hold structural longs, however."

    "EUR shorts have modestly extended over the week, but the leveraged community are still underweight compared to asset managers."

    "In the Antipodeans positioning has now turned, with the net buying in AUD/NZD seen on the platform. In NOK short-covering was the main theme as Norges Bank disappointed."

    "Overall, aggressive USD buying is occurring mostly against GBP, CHF and JPY, more modestly versus the EUR."
