 (Adds broader positioning, table)
    Oct 25 (Reuters) - Speculators cut their net long dollar
position in the latest week, according to calculations by
Reuters and U.S. 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, fell to $15.31 billion in the week ending
Oct. 22, from $20.79 billion the previous week.
    It is the smallest long dollar position since Sept. 17.
    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
long position valued at $15.10 billion, down from $20.38 billion
a week earlier.
