    FX OPTIONS: Vols are moving higher with AUD crosses taking the lead. 1m AUDUSD is paid at 12.2% (up from 11.25% from Friday's close). RBA tomorrow and also US payrolls end of the week is squarely in focus so vols are expected to remain well supported - especially with spot pushing back towards 7750.

    FX OPTIONS: After the big sell off in vols yesterday we now start to see some support especially in AUDUSD after the CAPEX release caused spot to move under 7850. The AUDUSD vol curve is still way lower than last week and could be a good time to put on some protection via options. There is still significant event risk over next week with RBA and US payrolls on the horizon.

    FX Options: USDCAD is nearing an important support-level at 1.2350. A break of that level could open for a significant move lower. On the other hand it looks like a good amount of long USDCAD liquidation has happened over night, so could be a good place to reenter.
    In the FX Options market we are starting renewed buying interest, mainly for USD calls. Not really seeing any interest at all for downside strikes. 04 MAR we have the BOC rate decision which is trading at a very high premium in the FX Options market.
    1M USDCAD vols has dropped 1.5 vols since yesterday, so it has become significant cheaper to play USDCAD via FX Options.

    FX OPTIONS: Vols are getting given this morning starting with USDJPY curve much lower after Yellen's testimony is out of the way. The only buying interest seems to be over the US payrolls (6 Mar). AUDUSD vol curve also much lower but gamma should start to find some support as we still have RBA, US payrolls next week in addition to several other data points.
