What is Forex Option?
Forex option is a contract, which gives a buyer the right to buy one currency at the pre-determined time and price. At the same time, the option seller receives a fee for the option contract.
Forex options are divided into Put and Call options.
- A put option grants the right to sell;
- A call option grants the right to buy.
How to use FX option expiries
In general if the market price is less than 70 pips shy of the expiry price and there is no other important fundamental announcement, the price is likely to advance towards the expiration price.
So, assuming that today’s EURUSD FX option expiry is at 1.10 and the price is at 1.1045, then it is likely that EURUSD will be under bearish pressure.
