Thank you for visiting Forex.Academy’s FX Options Expiries Section. Each day, where available, Forex Academy will bring you notable maturities in FX Options of volumes of $100 million-plus, as these large commutative maturities at the specified currency exchange rates often have a magnetic pull on price action, especially in the hours near their maturities. These happens daily at 10.00 AM Eastern time. This effect is due to the big institutional players hedging their positions using option derivatives. Each option expiry has to be considered ‘in-the-money’ if labelled as Hot and Warm, or ‘out of the money’ if labelled Cold with regard to the likelihood of price action meeting the strike price at maturity.

As we can see on the charts we have also plotted the expiration levels at the various exchange rate maturities and we have also labelled them as cold, warm or hot.

Therefore, if you spot exchange rates labelled as warm or hot, these should be considered In-Play. That is because we believe there is a greater likelihood of the expiry maturing at these levels based on the technical analysis at the time of this writing. However, if you see them labelled as Cold, they should be considered Not In-Play; thus it would be unlikely that price action could reach these levels, which are referred to as Strikes, at the New York’s cut time. Please consider that upcoming economic data releases are not factored in, nor did we take into account policymaker speeches that may modify the technical analysis outlook in the hours leading up to the expiration.

We suggest you plot these levels onto your own trading charts and combine this information into your own trading methodology in order to use the information to your advantage.

Remember the higher the volume of interest, the larger the gravitational pull towards the exchange rate maturity at 10:00 AM Eastern time.
