    Is it too obvious (or too late) to be short Spain and long USA?

    • humahuaca: I am already long US (SSO) short China (FXP)

    • John Rayhall: You could put a short on the EWP with a tight stop. I think being long SSO is a good move but not sure about the FXP if China cuts rates

    • humahuaca: I'm long FXP from $22, added at $24 and $25, and sold $26, $27 and $30 calls, so it's a pretty safe position as a hedge. Working so far!
