April 22 (Reuters) - Speculators turned negative on the U.S. dollar for the first time in nearly a year this week, with more investors in the global currency market taking short positions against the dollar than long positions, according to Reuters calculations and data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission released on Friday.
