CGTS Newsletter, Monday 2 Feb 2015 -- Short EUR/INR, Short GASL, Short VALE...

Monday, 2/2/15

Today the DJIA was down 170 points and then rallied; and this seemed to make everyone on CNBC relieved, happy, as if the trading bottom was in.

Those of you who are familiar with my writing know that I think we are headed for a significant down-side over the next half-decade. In truth, I am expecting a return to the 8787 level for the Dow Jones Industrial, before we bottom.

What about now, today?

Well, my view is that today's rally is pretty insubstantial.

My favorite long-term plays are long US TBonds (shorting the inverse ETFs, shorting yield).

Also, I'm long the USDollar, short the Euro. short the Canadian Dollar, short the Australian Dollar.

I think this scenario, strong Dollar, weak everything else, IS a picture of the deflation of the global debt bubble.

Note the chart I'm enclosing, ERX, Energy Stocks Bullish, seems to be suggesting that the OIL stock rally is just about over.

Today's new trades: short EUR/INR, short the Euro against the Indian Rupee, is our favorite trade of the day. See below for a complete list of new trades.

We also like the shortsell VALE trade.
