FX option expiries for the 1400 GMT cut - 30 October 2018
A look at what's on the board today
- EUR/USD: 1.1385 (EUR 490m), 1.1400-10 (1.9bn)
- USD/JPY: 112.00 (USD 1.1bn), 112.40 (695m), 113.10-15 (587m)
- USD/CAD: 1.3000-10 (USD 418m), 1.3050-60 (470m)
- EUR/GBP: 0.8850 (EUR 528m), 0.8900 (500m)
Do be reminded that these are only vanilla options. Not much on the board today but do take note that there's still reported barriers at 1.1300 for EUR/USD. With market sentiment in a state like this - fragile and volatile - expiries don't tend to take much precedence but they do have a say in terms of where anchors and caps may apply in terms of short-term price action.
Aside from a possible cap on EUR/USD in the hours to come, I don't see much else that will impact prices all too much. For more info on how to use this data, you may refer to this post here.
