FX option expiries for 17 August 10am New York cut
A look at what is on the board for today
Just a relatively big one for AUD/USD to take note of today, as highlighted in bold.
That said, the market is trading a lot on emotion right now i.e. risk sentiment so that is a considerable factor when viewing price action in general.
There's also a modest-sized one for AUD/USD closer to 0.7200 that may offer some interest but for now, price is keeping afloat as the July low @ 0.7289 is somewhat holding.
Likewise, there are a couple for EUR/USD around 1.1825-55 but nothing too significant.
That said, just be wary that a poor US retail sales report may amplify the risk aversion and softer risk tones in the market before the expiries above roll off later.
