You will recall that I bought another put option on the GBPUSD at the strike of 1.6115, with a breakeven of 1.5990 and premium cost of 125bps.

I really thought we were going to lose on this option as well.  Lady Luck has decided to show her beauty, the GBPUSD and the EURUSD has did an about turn southwards starting today and the current spot is now at 1.5938, so I am 52bps in the money.

Should I take profit now or wait it out alittle longer?  The political turmoil in the US surrounding the coming debt ceiling deadline on October 17th is so so unpredictable.  Should I just take profit, since, it is on the table or wait?

The 4H chart shows that the Tenkan cutting down on the Kijun, and we are now below the cloud.  The cloud is declining and so the is Chkou.  We are near the 200 day MA of 1.5873.

Decisions…………decisions………….decisions………….however, based on the technical analysis alone, I will stay with the option for alittle longer, but I am going to be following the news like a ‘hawk’.

Tonight’s FOMC minutes at 2am Singapore time and 2pm NY time, may take away support from the USD, as the Fed didn’t taper like what the markets were expecting in the last meeting.  However, if the minutes shows that the Fed is sensitized to the economy and wants to make sure it’s growing from strength to strength which is isn’t right now, then, it should be positive USD.
