Top 10 most volatile currency pairs and how to trade them

GBP/USD Expected to be Most Volatile Currency Next Week

GBP/USD | Weekly Range 1.2190-1.2475

GBP/USD ATM break-even straddles = 132pips/9.725vols(meaning that for option traders to realise gains, the spot price must see a move greater than 132pips).

As we head towards the scheduled Brexit deadline of October 31st and following Boris Johnson’s Brexit proposals, headline risk has seen implied volatility in the Pound unsurprisingly elevated against its counterparts. A hope-fuelled bid in the Pound had stemmed from the EU being open to discussions in response to PM Johnson’s plan, however, with the EU noting that they are not convinced by the plan and with the Irish PM stating that it falls short in a number of aspects, differences for finding an agreement remain quite apparent. Thus, the uncertainty will continue to weigh on the Pound and the UK economy.

While politics will remain a key driver for the Pound, the monthly GDP report may also garner attention given that the latest PMI survey’s signal that the UK economy may have slipped into a technical recession. However, the PMI survey does tend to overstate the weakness of the UK economy during times of heightened political uncertainty.
