Ok, it looks like my call was wrong.

Profited from the GBP because the put level was on the higher range.  In hindsight, the levels of the AUD, EUR and JPY were all kind of the mid range between the high and low goal posts.

Today’s Australia CPI was negative, indicating that the Aussie economy has gone into deflation the past quarter. This was good for my spot trade which I will share in another write up and makes my put option look alittle better but honestly, the I doubt the AUD level will be hit before the end of this month, only two more days.

Looks like I may be throwing away the options paid for the AUD, JPY and the EUR, then again, if I did a mark to market, then, I lost less doing the options then continuing the hold say an ‘open’ spot position, which would have necessitated a top up by now.

So, as I have always shared with all of you, if you have a fundamental view of a strategic view, then, play the potential opportunity by way of an option, rather than doing a spot transaction.
