DislikedLol, not sure how being more aggressive on the rate raises will help the US economy. It seems that we need USD down, China and others to re-value or increase the value of their currency to a decent level. Because then the US could improve the trade defect right? Everything I see says strong USD is really, really bad for this. But yeah, never trade this stuff because it does not help since it is so long term admittedly...Ignored
differentials and usd 2yr vs german 2yr helps me remember what we are trading, just another tool for me to follow direction of those larger entities
selling millions/billions of their euros to buy usd's or vice versa. It does not help in scalping for 15-30 pips but in volatile times (or real slow periods)
which way I want to be leaning. The 2yr jumped up to 2.513 this morning while the bund yield is at .559 and declining over the past week.
Ata, if these are too off topic for this thread I will only post eur-usd graphs going forward.
