First EURUSD Print: 1.3045

Tyler Durden's picture


Something tells us the BIS' Mikaël Charozé is not going to be too happy defending that all important 1.3000 border in the EURUSD tonight. First prints out of the gate: a timid 35 pip drop to 1.3045.

AAPL broke 50 day moving average on heavy volume couple weeks ago and couldnt rebound, now back under 50 sma.  pile on the shorts

if EUR/USD breaks 1.3000 look out below, next support at 1.26 and if that breaks it will see parity with USD

Gold about to break higher and USD aint looking so good either

Summer is going to be  very interesting

That's one of the problems with soaring stocks, they have such a loooong way to drop. Of course being a socially approved stock it can never be described as a bubble.

"It's going to be a very interesting summer."

Yes indeed it is. Perhaps even better than last summer (for currency traders.)

As for this evening, I think AUD/USD and/or NZD/USD are better shorts than EUR/USD. Always great "risk off" trades, especially on a Sunday evening after such a weekend. Whether the markets perceive increased volatility much in part due to the Europe elections, a decline in global markets, or are still just pricing in the Friday's jobs report, there is likely to be a flight to the "safety of the US dollar" (yeah, I know - LMAO too) and when that happens the Aussie and Kiwi usually take a real beating. Especially if commodities markets are trending down as they have been.

Shorted both and EUR/USD Friday afternoon. Just closed EUR/USD. Just added BIG to my already sizeable shorts on AUD/USD and NZD/USD. I'll either wake up with a huge profit or most of my earnings from the past two months wiped out. Because sometimes you just gotta' go for the gusto.

The talking heads are already defending this as bullish...

Hollande just wants to spend 1% of GDP more. This is absolutely the correct thing to do according to Krugman and Keyenes. He will pick a respected financier as PM. The Greek government wont be convened for months and the anti-bailout parties wont change anything that tjreatens the Euro. The markets are overreacting if they sell off on this. Growth is good. The obama camp is cheering this. It shows austerity doesnt work. The Republicans better take notice. The people wont support austerity.

No one has said one freakin thing about where the money is going to come from or how what this really shows is that you are scrrwed if you let your debt go to high.
