Implied Volatility - Talking Points:

  • GBPUSD and AUDUSD overnight implied volatility surge to 10.39 percent and 12.10 percent respectively as forex traders anticipate sizable price swings on the back of Brexit developments and RBA’s interest rate decision
  • The currency option market could be pricing additional USD risk in response to President Trump who reignited his attack on the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates, adding that the US Dollar is too high

GBP overnight implied volatility nearly doubled from 5.59 percent to 10.39 percent ahead of key event risk. This suggests sterling will trade between 1.3101 and 1.3245 – its widest range since January 29. The UK’s Purchasing Manager Index is scheduled to be released at 9:30 GMT tomorrow, but eyes will be on Bank of England’s Mark Carney who testifies to the House of Lords at 15:35 GMT and will likely provide some remarks on Brexit.

Despite the rise in implied volatility for GBP, a British official stated today that there is a negligible chance Parliament votes on the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal this week.

CURRENCY MARKET IMPLIED VOLATILITY AND TRADING RANGES

AUD overnight implied volatility leapt from 4.88 percent to over 12 percent as currency traders await the Reserve Bank of Australia’s interest rate decision and the country’s economic data. Although the central bank is largely anticipated to leave its policy interest rate unchanged at 1.50 percent, language from RBA Governor Philip Lowe will be scrutinized as markets try to gauge the future direction of policy. Weaker than expected data reported on Australian corporate profits at the start of today’s session also soured sentiment for the Aussie Dollar and could have bid up AUD hedging costs.

UPCOMING CURRENCY EVENT RISK AND ECONOMIC DATA RELEASES

GBP and AUD Overnight Implied Volatility Skyrocket

Likely contributing to the widespread uptick in implied volatility for the selected currencies is from the option market pricing additional USD risk in response to President Trump who reignited his attack on the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates, adding that the US Dollar is too high. Today’s anti-risk mood which caused a knee-jerk selloff in equities could have also contributed to heightened expectations for upcoming price action.
