Trade Tips: Well, on trading perspective, at spot reference: 1.1285 levels, it is advisable to tunnel spreads using upper strikes at 1.1297 and lower strikes at 1.1260 levels, the strategy is likely to fetch leveraged yields with attractive risk-reward-ratio as long as the underlying spot FX keeps dipping below but remains above lower strikes on or before the expiration.
