HSBC - Low volatility gives you options

HSBC - " Low volatility provides an appealing opportunity to hedge against currency risk. FX market volatility has declined sharply since the beginning of the year despite developments that might have been expected to push volatility up. The fall in volatility has been seen across the whole market and has come as the factors that pushed volatility up in 2013 have faded.

I just joined this very good site! Thank you for bringing a lot of relevant links and comments to this forex community. I was so surprised to see EURUSD break 1,3350 on Friday. Now I just hope that it reverses. I can not imagine that S&P 500 should continue its bull run, not to mention the Nikkei 225 that should break its back very soon. I believe that risk returns to the market this coming week, and that we will se a reversal of EURUSD back below 1,33. Maybe this could be the time to add some long-term positions? We will see :-)
