Morning Call. Market Overview for 15.08.2016


The Big Picture:

The Dax has gained for 5 consecutive weeks, rising 3,34% last week. This coming Friday sees an important options expiry date. Vital to expiry dates, is the observation, how the options market is positioned. Here, it is possible to see wether the market is long or short and at which basis price (strike). Should the DAX trade in direction of the predominant levels, traders need to act to counter/hedge possible losses. This can be done by shorting/buying DAX futures. These hedge activities can amplify market moves. Looking at this weeks options market, we can see that here are few open sell/put options above the level of 10700. Looking at the open buy/call options, we can see a different picture, here there are plenty of open positions at the level of 11000 which will needed to be hedged.In general, we expect upward pressure at level of 10700 and downward pressure around 10500.
