Re: Back to the well once more...long dollar

Ok, looks like the 1.50 level held. Time for some profit.

Looking like the dollar may come back and test the 1.45 level. I lightened up a little on Friday afternoon, but still got 6 lots.

Re: How dodgy is the Citibank-Abu Dhabi deal?

One day everyone is going to wake up and realize what this deal really is. Abu Dahbi didn't take a stake to make money. They got plenty of money. And there are surely better investments than a...

Re: Ben Stein: XLF - Financial SPDR

I think her company, AstraZeneca, limited the plan choices we get. Pretty much all I have to choose from is VIGIX, VIIIX, VIVIX, PRSVX, GTIIX, FOCPX and money market.

Re: Ben Stein: XLF - Financial SPDR

My bad, I didn't understand that you weren't putting it all there. Probably go with 2500, divided into three $833 chunks, but fees might make this futile.

Re: Ben Stein: XLF - Financial SPDR

ItalianFX,

I'd probably go for the financials. You got 7500 to invest. Break it into three chunks and average it in. Put 2500 in now since the market has "corrected" 10%. If it truly is a...

Re: Currency trading

Mort, you can get 200:1 leverage on a mini account, which is limited to $10,000. If you are playing with more than $10,000 you have to open a regular account with less leverage.

Stick $2000 in a...

Re: OPEC interested in non $US currency

Considering that oil has doubled in price and the dollar is only down about 15% in the same time, I don't think the old king should be complaining.

If it were that easy to wipe out your credit history, people with bad histories would do it. You history won't change.

Back to the well once more...long dollar

Might as well give this trade another run. EUR/USD looks to have formed a double top here. 5 lots from 1.4670.

Looking for the Yen to run tomorrow with US Equities falling hard.

Re: Giving the long dollar trade another try

I'm out with 150 pips on 5 lots = 750 pips profit.

There is probably some more profit to be had, but I expected this trade to take a couple of weeks to reach this point, not a couple of days.

Re: Giving the long dollar trade another try

The correlation between the EUR/USD and GBP/USD pairs is very high, so you get about the same size moves overall. The spread for the EUR/USD averages about 2.5 pips while the GBP/USD averages about...

If you don't like law, drop out now. If you don't like law school, you won't like practicing law. Practicing law is one of the most boring and tedious occupations on the face of the earth.
