Fxwirepro: Uphold Aud/nzd Call Flies Amid Tepid Ivs ahead of more Dovish Rba

RBA’s monetary policy meeting is scheduled on May 2nd; April’s central bank's board meeting minutes has been more dovish than previous months’.

1Q CPI next week’s focus; we forecast headline at 0.6% q/q and core at 0.4% q/q.

Terms of trade and private credit also important releases in the week ahead.

Kiwi CPI firmer than expected at 1%q/q, led by tradable inflation.

AUDNZD higher towards 1.0900 multi-day, global risk-aversion fading (AUD is more sensitive).

The medium term perspectives: Higher to 1.10. The cross remains well below fair value estimates implied by interest rates, commodity prices, and risk sentiment, although is closing the gap (6 Mar).

Please be noted that the IVs 2m ATM contracts have been tepid, creeping up at 6.56% which is on the lower side. An option writer wants lower IVs or IVs to fade away in an anticipation of premium to shrink away. You should also note short-dated options are less sensitive to IV, while long-dated is more sensitive.

Hence, amid lower IV environment, we advocate below option strategy:

Buying a 2-month AUDNZD 1.09-1.11-1.13 (1x2x1) call fly spread would likely keep underlying price fluctuation on the check.

BEP at 1.0848 and returns are likely when underlying spot FX keeps flying above these levels.

Long butterfly spreads are entered when the investor thinks that the underlying spot FX would not spike nor drop dramatically by expiration. Deploying calls, the long butterfly can be constructed by buying one lower striking ITM call, writing two ATM calls and buying another higher striking OTM call. A resulting net debit is taken to enter the trade.
