We are long-term U.S. Dollar bulls. And as the euro falls versus the dollar, that’s bullish for European equities.

Euro ↓ = European Stocks  ↑

That’s it.

Simple.

If you’ve been playing that game profitably for some time now, consider selling some (European equities that is). The euro is oversold. Plus, stock markets in Europe have had a great since run in the past three months as the post-Election Day rally in the U.S. dollar weakened the euro:

  • Italy, FTSE MIB: +15%
  • Germany, DAX: +10%
  • Spain, IBEX: +9.8%

HOW TO TRADE IT:

Our immediate-term proprietary risk range for the Euro versus the U.S. Dollar is $1.05 to $1.08. As the euro dipped to the low-end, European equities flat-lined in today’s trading. At the end of the range on the euro, that means sell some European equities.
