    Key Quotes

    “During the previous tightening cycle, volatility remained under pressure with EUR/USD volatility negatively linked to the US core PCE.”

    “The strong and lasting relationship between EUR/USD volatility and inflation floor options suggests that the former should not exceed 12. The negative skew and 6M realised volatility now just below this level (it rarely has spiked above) make it attractive to Buy a 6M put strike 1.07, conditional on realised volatility below 12.”
