A stream of data due at 12.30 GMT but that’s not the whole story 4 Aug

As per my daily update we have a few decent size volumes in play today across a variety of pairs

EURUSD: 1.1850 (EUR 950m)

USDJPY: 109.50 (USD 950m) 111.50 (1.68bln)

GBPUSD: 1.3220-25 (GBP 905m)

AUDUSD: 0.7950 (AUD 525m)

USDCAD: 1.2500 (USD 1.16bln) 1.2550 (680m)

Remember that these are “vanilla” options so still in play right up to expiry at 14.00 GMT even if breached in the meantime, unlike barrier options which cease to be once hit.

As always,
