Large ones in play again.
As I said yesterday, the tighter the trading range the tighter the option ranges become as expectation/hope of larger moves recede. That creates a greater impact such as we've seen in recent weeks/months. Catch 22.
Remember that these are "vanilla" options so still in play right up to expiry at 14.00 GMT even if breached in the meantime, unlike barrier options which cease to be once hit. The actual amounts can change right up to expiry.
