how to calculate corelation between FX and barrier options prices

Recommended Posts

We know that barrier option move/reflect like fx prices.
Let say we enter EURUSD market in barrier option when fx price is 1.1200
then we want to place a stop in barrier option that would be equivalent as having a stop in fx of lest say 50 pips.
how do we calculate the barrier option price for that stop?

Thank you.

The Barrier price is the distance between IG’s underlying price and the knock out level + premium. For example as below, the market is 28725 and the KO is 27000 (which is a difference of 1275). The KO premium is 10, so the price is 1285.

In your example the barrier price is the 50 points plus whatever the KO premium is. 

If you fill in a deal ticket, the premium and price should auto populate.

    • Break of the daily chart lower channel line on the 1H chart and currently retesting.  If the move I have outlined is to materialise then I would expect a drop from this retest  to complete a close below the daily line.  If this does occur I would expect this to be off further EURUSD and GBPUSD rallies with GBP being stronger in the rally.
    • EoD price action was Bearish and broke through that ST support level with other markets being more Bearish than the Dow (more to go for the Dow to catch up?).  After a bit of consolidation bearishness has crept back in ahead of the US open.  A break of the next ST support brings up the 27000 level but, depending on how the move goes, the market could go into another consolidation at the 27000 level and if this constitutes a Flag type formation then 26500 is a likely end to this phase.  With no clear EWT or PMD I don't see the bearish move completing yet.
    • @dmedin Yes I expect it will for around 2 or 3 hours but at 17:00 or so it should settle down, and between 17:00 and 19:00 it may be possible to pick a side. It could even be last hour but that doesn't matter so long as support holds I will be looking for a long position. If not I will start again tomorrow probably look for support at a new low. 👿
