Above looks like risk reversal to me.
Bad News ?
I am staying out.
There is just too much big picture out especially with the EU Finance Minister Summit to be postponed to Monday andPortugal vs IMF today to be comfy with.
And I am not sure if people have read this one ? Greek Potential Prime Minister says he may not honour a bailout deal !!! http://inagist.com/FT/169428480235290624/
Core positions : Still long USD/JPY although the accumulator position was knocked out at 78.30 this morning, short small AUD/CAD, long VIX to hedge long SILV.
Someone just asked me if its worth a punt for retail buying of Greek bonds that are maturing next month.
Any thoughts ?
