Beginning Of End For EU?

Monday, 3 May 2010 | 5:43 PM ET

In the wake of the Greece bailout, investors are raising concerns about the future of the EU.

Although many investors expected a relief rally to buoy the euro in the wake of the Greece rescue – a rally never materialized. In fact, the euro actually traded sharply lower on Monday.

Tomorrow's Headlines
A look at the market moving headlines for tomorrow, with David Riedel, Riedel Research Group.

The negative sentiment stemmed from a growing fear that other euro zone countries were vulnerable to the same woes vexing Greece.

Of particular concern were Portugal and Spain, says David Reidel Of Reidel Research. As you may remember, in late April S&P downgraded the debt of both nations.

Reidel doesn’t expect the Greece debt crisis to be the catalyst that causes the EU to crumble, but he does have serious concerns about Portugal and Spain.

”Watch for someone to be let go,” he says. “It might be Portugal that’s just big enough to fail.”

What’s the trade?

I’d go longTelefonica , says emerging markets trader Tim Seymour. It’s a defensive play. People need telephone service.

I’d shortTrina Solar, says Brian Kelly, on the belief that European nations cut subsidies to solar.
