  1. Hi Eamonn…What is the impact of these options expiration date to those pairs? Will the value served as support and resistance level?

  2. Hi Jong
    If a pair is near one of the levels around expiration time (10AM NY) you can expects trading around the level, if the option amount is large (of course, other influences may come into play too). I don’t have any guide as to the amounts at this stage though.

  3. Hi Eamonn, thanks for working overtime again. hope the new person(s) come in soon.

  4. Thanks Kelly – there will be a new person this week.

  5. Thanks Eamonn :)

  6. @Eamonn: Would the option barrier be considered broken when the price breached the price point briefly? In this case, 1.3550 for E/U pair is invalid so that expiry will not have any impact?

  7. The 1.3350 option is timed so it acts more like a magnet than a barrier. It expires at 10 am ET

  8. @Adam: Kindly correct me if my understanding is wrong, in this case of 1.3550 expiry, it means everyone will be dumping Euro once it expires and thus Euro will plunge?

  9. No, it means that someone has sold an option there. They could try to defend it. But someone else has bought it and they could push the market toward it. In general, the sellers have more resources but overall option don’t tell us that much.

  10. @Adam: Ahh now i get it. Thanks Adam! By the way, is there any light material recommended so i can read up to understand better?

  11. Adam, Adam made a Mistake. Its # 43 Natalia Oreiro.; ? I love Oreos, eat them all the time. ;)..I do;)
