FX option expiries for the 1400 GMT cut - 21 May 2018

Author: Justin Low | Category: Forex Orders

A look at the board - via DTCC

  • EUR/USD: 1.1760 (EUR 962m)
  • USD/JPY: 110.00 (USD 546m)
  • AUD/USD: 0.7500 (AUD 485m), 0.7548-50 (1.8bn)
  • EUR/GBP: 0.8700 (EUR 1.1bn)
Key ones are highlighted in bold. A slight update to Eamonn's list earlier in the day. For EUR/USD, the expiry today appears more of a cap and the pair has risen back up from lows of 1.1717 to 1.1742 currently. Also, for EUR/USD watch out for barriers at 1.1700.

For AUD/USD, the two expiries are helping to provide a nice range on the day with topside limited by the larger one at 0.7548. Do note for the pair that there is a large expiry at 0.7470 as well - AUD 1.3bn - so that will be something to consider for potential downside moves later in the day.
