Got stopped out on Friday, got back in short on monday.  

Not really looking for a bottom yet, but starting to become more and more weary of keeping this position for so long.  I went short 2 lots @ 1.2744. Definitely beginning to doubt myself after such a good run for the past month.  

I have made more than I make in 3 months at my regular job.

In fact I will probably close later tonight or very early tomorrow, as I think a lot of people will be taking profits.

rick,

You are up about 400 pips on that short, nicely done.

I should have gone back in at 1.28 but that prior trade was so long that I wasnt looking to come back in so quickly.

Looks good rick, I should not have covered.

I also imagine this move down is not good for buck if I recall his long EU.LB trade..

Hopefully he got out,  

I added another lot for a total of 3.  

Running a 50 pip trailing stop

If Euro dies, at least I will have a little scratch to buy some canned goods before the shockwave hits us.

Decided to take a risk flyer short at 1.2605 

Usually I dont like to go into a position lower than were I exited but I like the odds into this big phony US market move.

Still holding my pair didn't move nearly as much as the rest of them..I bought just over 83..I been letting this sit since I added..I got stocks to play with too so when I get stuck in one I go play with the other..Chk made a strong rebound for me first buy around 19..I added at 16 and 14 and some change..

I do need to spend some time on this though I coulda added in the 79s and been out with nice profit

buck,

On some phones the covers mobile website works better, with my phone I can use a browser I have and the site works great..

You are right, without mention of QE3 it will take a while to work through that position..because the EU has been and will keep needing to float to save the countries.

I really think the EU is worthy of being par with the USD or lower..scary thought but when it first started trading the EU was worth 80 cents on the dollar.

Was way tempted to hit the short EU tonight but will wait until the morning and see if they ramp the markets here and thus the EU.

I was hoping it would go against me over 100 pips so I could average up but it never did..
