NEW YORK ( ETF Expert) -- Nobody may have any interest in shorting the U.S. stock market right now. Yet, futures traders are growing increasingly excited about the prospect of shorting certain currencies.In particular, bets that the Japanese yen will fall against the greenback are at their highest levels since the summer of 2007. Granted, a contrarian might think that a high degree of short interest is an indication that Japan's currency could actually strengthen against the dollar. However, trend analysis suggests otherwise.
