Euro Futures Volatility Forecast (24/04/2011)

The HyperVolatility team was right once again because the 1.43 profit target we forecasted the last week has not been simply hit but it has been heavily surpassed making our analysis even more profitable and useful than what we thought in the first place.

The market opened at 1.4215 rallied to 1.4501 on Wednesday and 1.4531 was the closing price on Thursday: a wonderful trade!!!

The volatility is now extremely low and the decrease was clearly caused by the sharp rally which brought futures prices in the current level. Specifically, the conditional variance is around 0.47% (7.4% annualised) and statistically speaking there is a very high probability that the week ahead would see an increase in volatility because the curve will try to settle around the 0.53% – 0.55% area (8.4% – 8.7% annualised).

Consequently, the week ahead could experience some higher volatility and the price is going to be irremediably affected by this phenomenon because such an augment should drag futures prices back down in the 1.4350 area.

The HyperVolatility team is moderately bearish on Euro futures because the continuous depreciating process of the US Dollar against the Single currency is going to retrace and such a low volatility measurement is a clear signal that more turbulence is expected in the short term (particularly around the 1.46 threshold should the price gaps up on the opening).
