I like to compare the currency euro with its bond market the bund . Why?
Simply looking at the macroeconomic front of countries as we had strong PMI's this friday come out from European countries, bunds is focused to Germany which you could of took scalp or swing trade towards the positive outcome. Whilst looking at the fundamental aspects i'd reflect that towards euro currency pair performance with bunds and as well as that start of the week, we had positive aspect of EU recovery fund deal go through. Whilst comparing this, try this with dollar index currency. I find Bonds are more of long term invest in my opinion -
My portfolio view overall: Don't put yourself in one instrument, explore wide variety to build a stronger portfolio.
Just a trade idea, not a recommendation.
