Implied volatility in option prices is supposed to be the market's best estimate of future volatility. As such, a number of studies have investigated the performance of implied volatility in forecasting future volatility. However, most of the studies use data derived from exchange-traded options. Our paper sets out to test the performance of implied volatility, derived from OTC currency options, a much larger and liquid market, as a future volatility forecast.
