The King is Officially Back!

Discussion in 'Trading' started by riskfreetrading, Aug 8, 2008.

  1. As we wrote here and in RFT's blog, the dollar is officially back to rule the world of currencies.

    The EUR is getting a beating, and EUR/USD just broke the 1.5300 level.

    Let us discuss the implications of a dollar back to its throne on trading, Fed, etc.
  2. Let start the discussion with some examples.

    1. If you want to play stock that benefit from a strengthing dollar, which stocks would you play, which direction and why?

    2. If you would to trade stocks on short side which markets should you trade in?

    Examples of answers to points 1. and 2.:

    1. Short MCD, and long the indian outsourcing companies.
    2. Short european stock markets.
  3. Your post has nothing, nothing whatever to do with Elvis.
    I am bitterly dissapointed.:(

    For the time being, if your so sure, buy usd vs non-commodity currencies, why not,
    if your so sure. I suspect this strength may be very short lived, but ive been wrong before.

    And what about elvis?
