CURRENCIES

 

EURO – Goldman made the call to buy the Euro on Friday, so we shorted it. We’re long the US Dollar and looking forward to Super Mario I (Draghi) being politicized to cut rates to zero = bad for the Euro, as is failing at this 1.37-1.38 TRADE zone of resistance

EUROPEAN MARKETS

 

CAC – France is where we want to be focusing our positioning as the media focuses where we’d been. Italy still matters obviously, but the French banks are in a much more precarious position. CAC fails, again, at the only line of support it had left (3169 TRADE line) as the MIB index does the same (fails at 15988 TRADE resist)
