OTC Updates And Hedging Strategies:
The 3m positive skewness of gold options contracts implies more demand for calls (refer 1st chart). These positively skewed IVs of 3m XAUUSD contracts are still indicating the upside risks, bids for OTM call strikes up to $1,850 is quite evident that reminds us hedgers’ inclination for the upside risks.
The fresh bids for the existing bullish risk-reversal setup substantiates the above-mentioned bullish hedging sentiments, these risk reversal (RRs) numbers also indicate the overall upside risk environment (2ndnutshell).
Capitalizing on all the above fundamental factors and the price trend, we advocated longs in gold via ATM call options as they look to be the best suitable at this juncture.
Thus, we still advocate buying 3m XAUUSD (1%) ITM -0.69 delta calls on both trading and hedging grounds. If expiry is not near, delta movement wouldn’t be 1-point increase with 1 pip in the underlying movement, which means if the spot moves 1 pip, depending on the strike price of the option, the option would also move less than 1. Thereby, in the money call option with a very strong delta will move in tandem with the underlying. Courtesy: Sentry, JPM and Saxo
