  • USD/JPY: 110.00 ($2.6bn), 110.15-20 ($1.3bn)

  • AUD/JPY: 84.45 (A$782m)
  • EUR/AUD: 1.5450-60 (€696m)
It is month-end and quarter-end, so that it isn't too surprising to see a chunk of notable expiries across the board. I've highlighted the key ones in bold.

There are large ones sitting on top of EUR/USD spot price that may limit gains on the day, alongside other key near-term technical levels in general.

Likewise, there are downside anchors for USD/JPY as well to limit any major drop if there are wild swings that lie in the trading day ahead.

Although AUD/USD has a chunk of expiries on either side of the current spot price, there are modest-sized ones close to 0.7600-50 that could keep price action contained.

Besides that, there are big ones rolling off for EUR/GBP, AUD/JPY, and EUR/AUD near the current spot price so that might offer some stickiness on the day.

The rest of the week doesn't promise much else. Here's a look at what to expect:

EUR/USD
- 1.1850 (€1.1bn) 1/4

USD/CAD
- 1.2450 ($1.5bn) 1/4
- 1.2600-10 ($1.3bn) 1/4

AUD/JPY
- 85.85 (A$664m) 1/4
