BKSWING – 3 Trades for 08.27.14, Sell USD/CAD at Market


There has been quite a bit of action in the FX market this week and over the next 48 hours, we have a significant amount of Canadian and Eurozone data that could accelerate some of the moves in currencies and to take advantage of this opportunity, we are laying out 3 trades. The first is a TrendCatcher USD/CAD short trade. We like this trade because it has the momentum of the Burger King / Tim Horton deal and the catalyst of tomorrow’s Canadian current account balance and GDP report. This trade is taken at market. The second is a pending order to sell EUR/NZD on the belief that over the next 48 hours, EZ data will surprise to the downside. The third is also a pending order to Buy EUR/CHF on the belief that the SNB won’t allow the currency pair to drop below 1.20.

Here are the trades:

1. Sell USD/CAD at Market (now 1.0861)

Close 1/2 at 1.0811, move stop to breakeven
