Trade Alert - (FXE)- BUY
Buy the Currency Shares Euro Trust (FXE) March, 2016 $103-$106 in-the-money vertical bull call spread at $2.60 or best
expiration date: March 18, 2016
Portfolio weighting: 10%
Number of Contracts = 38 contracts
I think the Euro (FXE) is in a new uptrend against the US dollar (UUP).
We have spent over a year putting in a bottom for the beleaguered continental currency at $103, which right now, looks like it is holding like the Rock of Gibraltar.
You can pay all the way up to $2.70 for this spread and it still makes sense. If you can?t trade options here, just buy the (FXE) outright for a move to $116 in coming months.
We broke through the 200-day moving average to the upside two weeks ago, and are falling back to test that line. The old resistance at $108.49 is the new support.
ECB president, Mario Draghi, has once again threatened further stimulus in March to keep the continent?s meager growing rate growing. That gave us a 2.4-point pull back today from the recent top, and a nice entry point for this call spread.
However, past experience has proven that Mario is a better talker than a doer.
Not only that, what quantitative easing Mario Draghi has already implemented seems to be working. The latest Euro Zone GDP growth rate came in at 0.30%, not exactly robust, but better that the negative numbers we saw last year.
All we need now is for China, Europe?s biggest customer, to post some better economic numbers, and it will be off to the races for the Euro.
The Currency Shares Euro Trust (FXE) March, 2016 $103-$106 in-the-money vertical bull call spread is a bet that the Euro won?t fall below $106 by the March 18 expiration.
Now that the prospect of further interest rates rises by the Federal Reserve has been thrown out the window, the dollar has run out of appreciation fuel.

The best execution can be had by placing your bid for the entire spread in the middle market and waiting for the market to come to you. The difference between the bid and the offer on these deep in-the-money spread trades can be enormous.
Don?t execute the legs individually or you will end up losing much of your profit. Spread pricing can be very volatile on expiration months farther out.
