Leading indicators on monthly charts suggest prevailing price recoveries of SGD to sustain further and likely to evidence further dips in near future. on weekly is beautifully converging to the price bounces right from below 30 levels.
Both and oscillators are signaling indecision in overbought zones.
While an attempt of %D crossover of slow curve above 80 levels which is bought territory also suggest selling pressure are strengthened. To substantiate this view we've seen recent price declines on that has slid below 21DMA.
Although you may likely to see some price spikes in a day or two, we would anticipate more dips in the weeks to come. As a result, we come up with suitable currency strategic framework so as to match this trend swinging for slight downside risks. With current USDSGD spot FX is ticking at 1.4270, place call ratio spread with 1:2 ratios.
How to execute: Buy ATM 0.5 delta call with longer expiry (let's say 1m tenor). Sell two lots of call options, one 4D OTM strike calls (0.5% strikes) with positive theta and delta closer to zero, after squaring off this positon go long in 4D ITM call (0.5% strikes) with positive theta and delta closer to zero.
Thereby, the strategy matches the puzzling abrupt rallies and certain short term declines so as to suit the corrective slumps and to take the advantage of overpriced calls by shorting.
While, the delta value becomes more and more insensitive as the USDSGD falls lower and lower and hence on the lower side, the delta value is zero.
Why call ratio spread: As the pair has made steep slumps and healthy recovery we see a neutral to environment when you are projecting decreasing (see from next 1 month to 3 month it's been gradually reducing).
Risk/Reward Profile: The risk is unlimited. The reward is the difference in the strike prices plus the net credit, multiplied by the number of long contracts.
