Loonie? Buying th Canadian Dollar...

10/18/08 09:57AM EDT
We're looking to get long another currency other than the US Dollar. The Rydex Canadian Currency Shares (FXC) is likely where we’ll make a currency investment. The FXC has lost -13% of its value since the last week of October, and it also pays a 2.6% yield. Below is our chart and our levels.

BUY for a "Trade" = $82.10
SELL that "Trade" = $86.28

This is simply another way for us to express our investment idea that the US Federal Reserve will de-value the US$ again by cutting interest rates to negative (on a real basis). This will be inflationary, for a "Trade", and countries (Canada) levered to commodity price strength should benefit.
