News Trade Idea: Trading the Greek IMF Payment

The Greek €750 IMF Payment: The EUR hit Monday’s lows after the missed deadline for a "Greek reforms for EU cash" deal. Today the likely news trade opportunity is likely the news of this widely expected payment and short relief rally and/or reversal that follows. Simple trade strategies include:

1. Buy the EURUSD early today and with a sell target at one of our near term support levels noted below when either:

    a. Your chosen resistance level is hit.

    b. The EURUSD begins to reverse per your chosen indicators (for example, it dips below the 50 or 20    period EMA on the 4 hour chart below.

2. Sell the EURUSD when either:

    a. The current short term rally begins reversing per your chosen indicators.

    b. The pair hits your chosen resistance level from those presented below.

Our underlying assumption is that any relief rally will be short because the IMF repayment only buys Greece a few more weeks.
