The implied volatility rates are averages of mid-level rates for bid and ask "at-money-quotations" on selected currencies at 11:00 a.m. on the last business day of the month.
The New York Fed will discontinue the publication of implied volatility rates on September 30, 2013. These rates have been published since 2000 with the original intent of providing price transparency to auditors and examiners in the foreign exchange community. Over time, measures of implied volatility have become widely available from multiple data sources, providing scope for the New York Fed to cease publication. If you have further questions, please contact Eric Pajonk at (212) 720-1735 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
