He feels that this s is mostly because the GBP weakened more against the EUR than the USD. In his view, the most likely scenario is a reconnection, with EURGBP vol heading lower and GBPUSD vol converging higher. Galy writes, "EURGBP realised volatility is very toppish, while the cable breaking downward should increase its volatility. We recommend buying a 1M straddle in cable and selling a 1M strangle in EURGBP, on a vega weighted basis. This strategy will generate carry in a range-bound environment, or will benefit from a trend in cable either way."
