Forex options expiring at the 10am (15.00 GMT) New York cut 20 December 2019

There’s some very big expiries going off today, and plenty of them, so I’ve decided to list them in a full blog post rather than just the Live blog. USDNCH definitely has the most with over 35bn in large expiries rolling off. Although it’s not the end of the month or year entirely, it is the last main trading week before the holidays, and that’s likely the reason we’re seeing so much expiring today.
