  • AUDUSD:  0.7710-20 ( AUD 1.25bln) 0.7800 (580m)
Option expiry impact has definitely been notable recently. AUDUSD in play today and buy-side interest being defended currently with that move up to 0.7722 from 0.7702. Should be a good battle with strike price so close. EURUSD and GBPUSD in play too.Tomorrow's USDJPY should help provide demand around 106.00 and offers into 107.00

Wed 21 March:
  • EURUSD 1.2250 (EUR 1.3bln)
  • USDJPY  106.00 (USD 3bln) 107.00 (1bln)
Remember these are vanilla options and in play right up until expiry even if breached in the meantime unlike barrier options which cease to be once broken. Barrier Options still live:
  • EURUSD 1.2600
  • USDJPY  105.00 104.00
