Treasuries Investors Reduce Bets on Drop, JPMorgan Says

April 17 (Bloomberg) -- JPMorgan Chase & Co. said investors raised expectations for price gains in U.S. Treasuries by the most on record in a weekly sentiment survey.

Long positions increased by 10 percentage points to 25 percent, the largest weekly increase in so-called outright longs since the survey started in October 2010, JPMorgan said in a report today. Neutral positions decreased by 15 percentage points to 57 percent, the largest weekly decline since March 7, 2011.

Short positions increased by 6 percent to 19 percent. A short position is a wager the price of a security will fall, while a long position is a bet it will rise. JPMorgan doesn’t disclose the number of clients in the survey.
