The European Debt Crisis Continues its Uncertainty

Proven FX Management Strategies to help Ride the European Economy Rollercoaster

MIAMI, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2012) - Each day with the world's eyes on Europe's stock markets and global ears on the announcements following the European Central Bank (ECB) meetings, there are tell-tale signs of disappointing economic data. The reality of a perpetual gloom lingering over the Eurozone, and world markets bracing daily for news of a downturn on global foreign exchange markets, emphasizes the need to shift the attention to how financial businesses at a regional level can be proactive about protecting their forex investment portfolios.

Focusing on current events, it's no secret that European stocks are sliding into the red on a daily basis. This downward volatility combined with edge of the seat attention on the insecurity of the ECB's plans, and reports of weak US manufacturing data are overshadowing the bigger picture. According to the Federal Reserve's Beige Book report South Florida's economy is looking at a "modest" recovery on the whole. How can businesses in the Sunshine state get out of the wait-and-see mode, and not only, continue to monitor, but also be proactive about riding the economic road to recovery?

"Not only is it important for us to monitor what's going on with the 'state of the union,' when it comes to foreign exchange, but we need to start focusing on short term solutions that will make a lasting impact on helping businesses weather the storm," says Cheryl Girling, National Account Manager, at Cambridge Mercantile Group. "From the start, financial professionals should be equipped with tools and solutions that are sustainable and create a safety mechanism to protect their forex investments. In discussions with our clients, financial professionals are telling us every day that they're getting caught up monitoring the Eurozone debt crisis, but aren't able to strategize on how exactly to hedge their risks for making positive returns. We want to bridge this gap."
