    Also am i correct in assuming that same strike call and puts have the same volatility? e.g. a EURUSD 1.1000 strike put and call has the same IV? thanks

    by definition ! Because of the call put parity, if they had different volatilities there would be an arbitrage.

    This is not the case because of skew - there is often more demand for downside options due to spot-vol correlation. Take USDJPY for example, spot moves...

    Hi Guys, I am new to this forum. I would be grateful if someone could help me address my questions on the vol Grid shown above.

    1. For ATM for this grid i.e. 18-Mar, the USDCAD 1M ATM vol is stated as being 10.65 (+0.05). I can see that 10.65 is the ATM vol but then what is the 0.05? ATM Straddles are not supposed to have a skew so what is the number in the bracket?

    2. For the USDCAD 1M 25 Dental RR it states 0.2 (-0.05). Once again, what is the number in the bracket for? There should be just one RR number so then whats the number in the bracket? I assume that the RR are with respect to Calls. In this case calls are bid over puts?

    thanks,

    FX Options - USDJPY: Vols are slowly trading lower this morning. HFs are said to be buying good amount of 2w-6w No Touch options with barriers in both directions (DNTs), which is putting pressure on the vol curve. 1m ATM is now trading at 9.95.

    FX Options - USDJPY: With USDJPY spot back in the 116-120 range we have seen volatility trading a touch lower. Most interests in the interbank market is concentrated around the BOJ meeting 18 feb where the market is interested in hearing if Kuroda is going the confirmed the talk from last week regarding any new BOJ stimulus.
