QQQ/EWG: Merkel gave us green light, short Germany and long QQQ

QQQ/EWG  
QQQ/EWG  
This potentially a very rewarding pair trade. You can enter shorts in Dax             (either via CFDs or using the EWG             etf ) and longs in Nasdaq composite             (CFDs or via the QQQ             etf ), risking 1 time the monthly average true range (but using no stop - the idea is merely to size the trade based on volatility ).
This is potentially a long term trade, and a good way of gaining short exposure based on fundamentals without being solely short Deutsche Bank or Germany.

Good luck,

Ivan Labrie.

I'm out of DAX at 10311, holding EWG, as a pair trade with QQQ for now.

good, I'm out from 10280.

I will add shorts after GER open...
(I hope it opens with a gap)

I don't think this DB stuff will be solved easily.

Me neither, I'm willing to play the 'short Dax' theme for a while longer...also as a bit of a hedge against my US equities longs.

I agree,
I have some IBB (Nasdaq BIOTECH) ETF.

NASDAQ should explode with FED rate hike.

What do you mean? I don't think we'll get a rate hike any time soon.
Market looks overall bullish.
I think the DB issue is the main thing in focus now.

Yellen promised a rate hike in 2016 in the last FOMC press speech, I was talking about that.

Probably due for December.
