Over the last several months, many Foreign Exchange (FX) currency pairs have been trading in narrow ranges. Whether it’s just a summer phenomenon or a structural shift in market volatility, no one can be certain – but it has created challenges for many FX investors who find it difficult to make money in range-bound, narrow markets. To take advantage of this low volatility environment, traders and institutional investors can employ popular trading strategies utilizing vanilla strategies as well as well as more advanced strategies using Double No Touch (DNT) FX options.

On September 19, 2012 Udi Sela discussed the mechanics of DNT strategies and explained how they can help investors seeking higher returns while limiting potential losses.

Using a USD/JPY case study with pricing examples and actual market rates, Mr. Sela covered the following key topics in the webinar:

  • Discussion of the recent low volatility environment

  • Traditional volatility trading strategies
  • Mechanics
  • Risks
  • Primer on DNT FX options
  • Risk measures and scenario analysis for DNT strategies
  • Similar strategies – European Range Bet options, DNTs in emerging markets
