    FX Options: Volatilities in general are offered, butterfly is sold off and risk reversals are sold back. EURUSD 3m from a week ago is 1 % down 25 delta risk reversal is 0,75 % down and 25 delta butterfly is down 0,075 %. This picture covers all major Currency Pairs. So market is long both vega and gamma going into summer holidays. We think volatility will stay offered particularly in front end, There is some support here around 10 % but we expect it to give away over coming weeks and head towards 9 % area. In USDJPY the curve has less potential on the downside and we see slow demand for 6m-1y strikes.

    It sounds and feels like a "flash crash" of sorts, linked to China's precarious financial markets. Some shadow bank-purging behind the veils?

    Anyway, the technicals don't necessarily look...
