NEW YORK (Reuters) -Speculators' net long bets on the U.S. dollar fell in the latest week, according to calculations by Reuters and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released on Friday.

The value of the net long dollar position was $18.46 billion for the week ended July 26, compared with a net long position of $18.98 billion, last week.

U.S. dollar positioning was derived from net contracts of International Monetary Market speculators in the Japanese yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc, and Canadian and Australian dollars.

The U.S. dollar has risen about 11% against a basket of currencies this year, helped by a hawkish Federal Reserve and heightened geopolitical tensions that have boosted the greenback's safe-haven appeal.

A mix of profit-taking and a strong rebound in investors' appetite for riskier currencies in recent weeks, however, has sapped some of the dollar's allure.

On Friday, the dollar index slipped to a near four-week low.
