Up, Up and Away? Maybe Not

Here’s hoping that everyone had a delightful Thanksgiving break. Since I was home for a long weekend, I was actually able to trade futures for a bit on Friday, and managed to make money using some of the techniques taught to Todd (including $TICK) even from the long side. Most of the time, I have […]

Updating the “Under Water Down Under” Trade

Back on August 25, I suggested that after a sharp move downward, the AUD/USD had bounced sufficiently to offer an enticing level for entering a new short position around 1.0470. In the interim, the sharp rise in risk appetite has pushed AUD higher in its wake despite some additional snugging by the People’s Bank of […]
