Decent size forex option contract expiries in play once more 21 July

Stop me if you've heard this one before but ignore at your peril as I always say too.

There seems to be a growing number of you out there who now either understand or believe that these expiries at 14.00 GMT each day do indeed have impact, and so it is once again today.

GBPUSD at 1.3000 and USDJPY between 111.40-50 already helping to contain the morning's moves, the former also running into decent supply at 1.3020 as per the order board

I'm out of here now so I'll wish you all good trading and a great/peaceful week-end. See you back here for more fun and games on Monday.

Thanks as always for your brilliant support and I hope we've helped make/save you more than a few pips along the way, and remember,
