You're Not Too Late: Three Euro Trades You Can Make This Week

Currencies / Euro May 15, 2010 - 09:27 AM GMT

By: DailyWealth


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTom Dyson writes: In March 2009, the Federal Reserve announced it would spend $300 billion buying Treasury bonds...

The Federal Reserve has immense financial power. You'd expect this announcement to cause prices to rise in the Treasury bond market. And they did. The day they made the announcement, Treasury bond prices had their biggest one-day gain in history... and continued rising for a few days after.

Then, a funny thing happened. Treasury bonds started falling again... and a few weeks later, they were hitting new lows.

Imagine trying to dam the Mississippi River. You use the world's strongest concrete, the most expensive machines, and the smartest engineers. For a while, your dam holds the river back. A reservoir forms. But then the dam starts crumbling. What do you think happens to the reservoir?

It gushes into the valley, of course.

When I saw the Federal Reserve's dam wasn't strong enough to hold back the Treasury bond price, I knew a flood was coming. Treasury bond prices were going to fall much farther. And as you can see in the chart above, that's exactly what happened.

Right now, the same situation is playing out with the euro.

The euro has been falling for almost six months over fears of a debt default by some of the bankrupt European governments. Last week, European bureaucrats announced a trillion-dollar bailout package, intended to protect these governments from default.

The euro soared on this news in one of the largest one-day rallies in many months. But guess what? The rally lasted about an hour. Last week, the euro broke to new lows again...

In other words, the European dam has failed. The forces pushing the euro down are too strong and there's a flood coming. Even though the euro has already fallen a long way... my broken dam theory makes me almost certain the euro's exchange rate will fall from here.

There are several ways you can make this trade. Buying European manufacturing or commodity companies would be one way. These companies pay their costs in euros but earn their profits in dollars. When the euro falls, their costs fall. But this is too indirect for me...

Buying the double-short euro fund is a second way you could play this. The symbol is EUO. This is the trade I recommended to subscribers of my trading service, Penny Trends. (We timed it perfectly and my readers are showing a 25% gain.) Let's say my broken-dam theory is right and the euro falls to $1.20 this summer. That's a 5% move in the euro. The double-short euro fund will rise 10% in that scenario.

Buying a put option on the euro fund is your third choice, although I'd only recommend it for experienced option traders. The euro fund's symbol is FXE. It's a large fund and there's plenty of liquidity in the option market.

If none of the above ideas suit you, don't worry. With all the government intervention I see in our future, you'll have plenty more "broken dam" opportunities to take advantage of over the next few years...

Good investing,


The DailyWealth Investment Philosophy: In a nutshell, my investment philosophy is this: Buy things of extraordinary value at a time when nobody else wants them. Then sell when people are willing to pay any price. You see, at DailyWealth, we believe most investors take way too much risk. Our mission is to show you how to avoid risky investments, and how to avoid what the average investor is doing. I believe that you can make a lot of money – and do it safely – by simply doing the opposite of what is most popular.
