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:
- 1.1850 (€1.1bn) 1/4
- 1.2450 ($1.5bn) 1/4
- 1.2600-10 ($1.3bn) 1/4
- 85.85 (A$664m) 1/4
