Beware the bigger G10 FX option strikes expiring next week

The cash hedging of soon-to-expire FX option strikes can often influence FX price action by adding to any nearby support/resistance and can potentially draw and contain spot, as we saw with EUR/USD on Thursday, so it is worth knowing where the bigger strikes reside and when they expire.
