Forex Flash: Survey outcome, EUR/CHF strike positioning – Societe Generale

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Sebastien Galy, Senior FX Strategist at Societe Generale offers some sage advise from the trading floor looking at EUR/CHF.

He writes, “In the words of a very senior trader and completed with other sources of information "Dealers are short ATM and topside region, against long downside a tad above 1.20 obviously and then short again sub 1.20. In other words, a lousy position. Expect spot vol correlation to be massive, spot higher, vols higher big time all way till 1.24sh cause then dealers get long again from call spreads. Strikes then spread from 1.2250/1.23/ around 1.24/ 1.25 and general unpreparedness for a weaker CHF in the market making community."
