Eyeing Key Resistance


Maintains A Bullish Tone

OPTIONS: USD/CNY option flows surging Monday on the back of Trump's decision to
delay a planned tariff hike on Chinese imports. Close to $7bln in option
notional have crossed the DTCC so far today, well ahead of the average total
trading day. Bullish bets on the CNY via USD/CNY puts have been the most in
demand trade so far, with over $5bln in USD/CNY puts crossing vs. just under
$2bln in calls. Some of the larger trades of the day include what appeared to be
the simultaneous buying of two strangles: buying Cny6.77/6.89 calls,
Cny6.60/6.67 puts, equally weighted for a total notional of over $1bln. Trade
rolls off in 45 days' time on April 11th.
