Trade Update: Short the Brazilian Real

By

This morning I wanted to revisit Rich Ross' currency call on shorting the Brazilian Real ( BRZ ) and cut right to the chase to the bottom line.

We are looking at a key technical move but wouldn't be happening if Brazil's government wasn't letting it happen.

The government is comfortable with inflation and is continuing a fiscal adjustment that aims to make the economy more competitive, chase out foreign speculative money flows, and to reset domestic utility pricing and concessions.

This was an important break higher and it could go to 2.20 in my view.
