    This should be okay. I do believe the E$ is going to continue down, and if it survives at all, it will be similar to the US$. A necessary currency or medium of exchange. I am NOT sure if the E-zone will survive, taking the E$ with it. Therefore, If I had ANYthing denominated in E$, I would exit NOW. I mean, how much more clear warning do you need. Consider a financial brick has hit you on the head, and when your birdies clear away from your brain, Short the E$ as a hedge if you must remain in E$ valued items, or just short it for profit. Don't consider it blood money, how many times has the market ripped you apart in the past. Maybe you can recover a little here. So, now as far as using EUFX, fine, but DRR will give you more bang for your buck. I made X using EUO and X+ using DRR... So you will not have a leveraged play, but you will have a fairly good prospect of a profit. NOTE: You should keep it once put on. I would not use discipline using a short on the E$, because it can be terribly whipsawed by TPTB. Emotions and the news of the day can make the E$ rise. But the trend is decidedly down, so go with it.


    Happy sliding, now listen very nice, pull down you pants and slide on the ice!
