EUR/USD risk reversals hit 7-week low as markets favor EUR puts (bearish bets)

One-month 25-delta risk reversals on Euro (EUR1MRR), a gauge of puts to calls on the common currency, fell to -0.45 soon before press time, indicating the investors are buying put options - adding bets to position for weakness in the EUR. 

That is the lowest reading since Dec. 18. A negative number indicates the implied volatility premium or demand for put options is higher than that for calls options. 

A put option gives the holder a right but not obligation to sell the underlying at a predetermined rate on or before a predetermined date.
