 (Adds further positioning, table)
    By Kate Duguid
    NEW YORK, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Speculators raised their bullish
bets on the U.S. dollar for the third straight week, according
to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading
Commission data released on Friday. 
    The value of the dollar's net long position, derived from
net positions of International Monetary Market speculators in
the yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc and Canadian and
Australian dollars, was $12.69 billion, in the week to Feb. 4.
    That compares with a net long position of $9.58 billion the
previous week.
    In a wider measure of dollar positioning that
includes net contracts on the New Zealand dollar, Mexican peso,
Brazilian real and Russian ruble, the U.S. dollar posted a net
short position valued at $8.07 billion, down from $4.28 billion,
a week earlier.
