In spite of todays bad showing, I'm not so sure getting short usd is still a bad idea I think my bad idea was geting long eur No sense beating myself up over it, it made perfect sense at the time. If usd is going down, then going down against what? eur seemed like the perfect candidate. I'm already short too much usd. Now I just need to figure out a way to also get short eur. That's putting a lot of strain on all those other little currencies. But I always have gold and crude on my side.
