Correlation between Australian Dollar/US Dollar Exchange Rate and S&P 500 VIX

Correlation between AUDUSD and S&P 500 Volatility Index

A group of equity market strategists at Goldman Sachs recently issued a report recommending that readers go long Puts on the S&P 500 that expire on September 14—options that give the buyer the option to sell the S&P at a predetermined price. Why? The S&P 500 Volatility Index looks especially low given critical European and US economic event risk through the end of this week warns and a pivotal German vote on September 12.

The recommended trade would do well if the S&P VIX surges and/or the S&P 500 falls before September 14.

How do we trade such big event risk?

Given the strong correlation between stocks, the VIX, and the AUDUSD, we believe that an Australian Dollar-short position would likewise do well in such conditions.

Is now the time to buy Australian Dollar weakness? We see arguments for and against such a trade, but ultimately the results of critical event risk will likely decide the fate of the risk-sensitive AUDUSD.
