I was really impressed with how the Dow rocketed 200 points yesterday, but the Euro managed to rally less than a penny. It is an old trader’s rule that if you throw good news on a market and it doesn’t budge, then you sell it.

All eyes are now on the Spanish bond auction on Thursday which is expected to be a disaster. Any yield over 6% will cut the knees out from under the Euro.

Conservative, balanced budgeting Sarkozy is also behind in the polls in Sunday’s French presidential election, and a win by socialist Hollande would be very euro negative.

It feels like markets everywhere are coiling up for a big move so I am doubling up my Euro shorts here, taking my position in the Currency Shares Euro Trust (FXE) June, 2012 $130 Puts from 5% to 10% of the total portfolio. ETF players can buy the (EUO).
