I wanted to buy put options on FXEtoday if it got to 130, it never made it, now I'm pondering to justbuy put options at the open manyana. The banks and co-opted governmentsare railing against thier citizens,it will end badly for world economies, but when will the turn come? What catalyst? One thing is for sure the euro will go to parity .
Yes, I think the euro WILL go to parity. And when it gets there, it will go lower.
Where is the risk in the swaps? The Fed gets back the same number of our dollars at the end of the swap and the swaps are only made to politically friendly and floating-currency issuing central banks. Arguably the USA actually benefits from these transactions because it prevents our trading partners from defaulting on dollar denominated obligations that would occur for no other reason than dollar shortages. Those defaults would reduce the value of our assets and make us poorer and cause instability in the banking system. Or am I missing something? I realize it is irritating as a forex trader to have big brother meddle with your markets but we all have had a lot of THAT lately.
