    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey

    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey
    Puts, calls, strike price, in the money and out of the money ... there's plenty of jargon in the trading of options. Just as sailors make sure that everything is shipshape before they set out, smart traders do their homework first before venturing into options trading.

    COT: Strong EUR buying at the expense of JPY

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Hedge funds reduced their exposure the dollar during the week of March 11. Six out of eight IMM currency futures were net bought, not least the EUR. Renewed selling of JPY pointed towards some activity in the EURJPY currency pair.

    Short USDCAD at 1.1111 mainly because the rally seems overdone and because of apparently positive developments in Ukraine today that could bode well for risk assets.

    Since right before the FOMC meeting until earlier today, I have been in and out of several long USD trades. I think the the USD could continue to strengthen in general. For this reason, this trade is smaller than normal for me.

    This rally may be easily a move from the last important low @ 1.0909 to new highs around 1.1559

    I agree Jose. This was just a very short-term scalp for me. Longer-term, I don't know; could definitely go higher.

    Amid the recent sell off across the board, dont be surprised if I say – EURUSD might reach 1.43-1.45 levels. If it sustains these levels for a week or so, then 1.5 is also in radar!! If not, then I will take my first step to short this pair for a colossal SELL OFF!!!
