Goldman Exits Losing Trade on Dollar Drop Versus Currency Basket

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said it exited a money losing bet that the dollar would weaken against a basket of currencies after turmoil in European markets and broader risk aversion added to the greenback’s refuge appeal.

The trade was “stopped out” after a loss of 2.3 percent, the New York-based securities firm said in a note today. On Aug. 10, Goldman recommended betting against the dollar with a basket of currencies comprised of the New Zealand dollar, Russian ruble, Swedish krona, South Korean won, Malaysian ringgit and Chilean peso.
