  • That's changing as USD's bid threatens 104.40 -range top since December

  • Short covering lifts 1-month implied volatility 0.7- to 5.75

  • However, expensive versus historics - needs actual volatility to perform

  • Premium for JPY calls over puts (downside) on risk 1-month reversals hit

  • 0.25 vol premium for JPY calls over puts is a new multi year low
