EXCLUSIVE: DIARY Of A CURRENCY TRADER | mEET mALCOLm PRYOR
Welcome to the first issue of YTE UK for 2012, where the hot topic remains the European debt crisis. Traders have an opportunity to take advantage of volatility in the markets and currency trading continues to experience a boom. As a result, your Jan/Feb 2012 issue of YTE UK takes a good look at what to expect, and which currencies to trade in 2012.
Our contributors are bullish on the USD. In our cover story, ‘US Dollar to Outperform European Majors in 2012’, Michael Boutros and Christopher Vecchio provide currency market analysis of the USD and European majors, providing some insight into which currencies to trade in 2012 (page 40). Similarly, in Chart Watch (page 56) Hemal Pandya considers the possibility of a sustained rally in the USD, and the impact that might have on sterling and euro currency crosses in 2012.

In the face of global uncertainty and declining markets, traders and active investors with good money management and a taste for education may find some lucrative opportunities unique to those market conditions. In ‘The Big Picture’, Glenn Kuppe examines the history of bear markets and takes a step back to assess where we are in the cycle presently (page 34). Ben Mountifield explores what peak oil means for society at large and the opportunities it creates for traders to profit (‘Commodities Corner’ page 22).
