...You will need it. The EURUSD has officially confirmed the much dreaded "Insane YoYo" formation. As a reminder the last time we had a dreaded chart spotting (The Hindenburg Omen from August 12, 2010), the Fed was forced to launch QE2 two weeks later. On a more serious note, the imminent announcement of a favorable Troica report on Greece will likely send the pair up 100 pips.

Exactly, Tyler. Fed again resorting to surrogate bailouts, like in 08-09. 

Bail out every nation, island and tribe that lines up yelling.

That will soon mean all ex-Soviet block Euro nations, MENA and resource rich African countries, Pakistan and any regions that threaten independence from India. And Japan.

Its looking like a one way street in Eur/Usd at the moment, with the greeks about to be bailed and people thinking about QE3 again, add to that the floated idea of an "EZ finance ministy", and its hard to short it(i wouldnt if i was you). Todays news is hitting growth currencies, and i think the pair took a hit from that...other than dealer shenanigans, im still cool. There was no way the pair was staying down for long on that NFP number.
