OPTIONS: Hedging volumes largely mixed in early US trading, with EUR/USD volumes
slipping slightly lower than average for this point in the trading day. USD/JPY,
AUD/USD and (in particular) USD/HKD trades, however, are well above average
Wednesday.
-Today's AUD/USD options notional sums up to close to $4bln, roughly double the
volumes you'd normally expect to see. The AUD/USD put/call ratio today of 0.78
leans in favour of protection against AUD upside, sentiment that will likely
accelerate should spot successfully rally through the 50-dma at $0.7296.
