FROM LAST WEEK'S COMMENTARY - 8/4/2008:

"The end of the bear trend in the U.S. DOLLAR INDEX will be in effect as signaled by the breaking of the resistance line. (see chart). We cannot classify the September 2008 U.S. DOLLAR INDEX to be extremely bullish until prices violate $74.50 on increasing volume. However, if prices close below $72.00 and stay below $72.00 for three consecutive days, the downtrend in the U.S. Dollar Index will most likely continue.

We want to wait for the breakout either up or down before placing a trade on the September U.S. Dollar Index Call Option and/or Put Option.

So, until next time, watch $74.50 to go long one call option (referenced above) and sell one put option."

BELOW IS WEEKLY CHART FOR 8/1/2008:

My fellow J.E.D.I.,

Please see the daily AND weekly chart for SEPTEMBER 2008 U.S. DOLLAR INDEX below DATED FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 2008.

WEEKLY CHART:

So, if the September 2008 U.S. Dollar Index does not pullback tomorrow, then sell the 74 Put Option (or sell the 75 put option if it offers a higher premium than the 74 put opion) but only, if prices close above 78 anytime between tomorrow and friday and on higher than normal volume.

Good Luck!

And may the force of volatility will be with you.

Best Regards,
