Here's the notable 15.00 GMT expiries that the DTCC have listed for today 20 Jan

  • EURUSD 1.0500 (EUR 2bln) 1.0700 (1.7bln)
  • USDJPY 115.00 (USD 2.3bln) 115.25 320m) 115.70 (420m)
  • AUDUSD 0.7450 (AUD 351m) 0.7500 (409m) 0.7550 (203m)
  • USDCAD 1.3200 (USD 463m) 1.3475 (500m) 1.3500 (939m)
  • NZDUSD 0.7300 (NZD 600m)

EURUSD seems nicely book-ended.

Expiries come today courtesy of the research hounds of our good friends at Livesquawk

Remember that these are "vanilla" options so still in play right up to expiry at 15.00 GMT on the day even if breached in the meantime, unlike barrier options which cease to be once hit.

USDJPY orders 19 Jan

Currently 114.80 after failing at 115.00 so far, an area I highlighted earlier I remain unconvinced by the rally and have re-sold a little above 114.90 with a view to selling more into 115.20. Re-appraise above 115.50. Not as convinced as in recent weeks though for the moment.

Currently 1.2335 after failing above 1.2400 After the sell rumour/buy fact around May's speech we now wait to see the full aftermath/considered reaction. Seems like there's an element of confusion still hence the tight range for the moment.
