When levels trade, they don’t often conform to the pip exactly. if there’s a level at 50, we’ll see 49/48 or 51/52 prints but looking at the action here at 70/80, where there’s just under 1bn going off, it’s very clear that there’s traders nailing the price to the pip on these option levels.

That’s not to say the price won’t move above or below here, nor get a bit more volatile into the expiry at 15.00 but for now, there’s interest to keep the price right here.
