The Aussie-Swiss Cross

Closing the Gap - Futures Edition

The Yen, the US Dollar and the Swiss Franc are often seen as safe-haven currencies. Today, tastytrade focuses on the Swiss Franc, /6S, and its correlation to Australian Dollar (/6A) and the risk on/ risk off trade.

With uncertainty around commodities prices, traders often look to Aussie Dollar as a proxy for not only commodity prices, but asian markets as well. With the Franc as a "safe haven," traders can look for opportunity via this pair based on the short and long term price of "protection."

Tune in to determine how to set up an Aussie-Swiss cross and how to set the size of the pair based on notional value and implied volatility. Then, get Pete's take on a realistic management standpoint for this pair whether you're long or short!
