I understand that in regard to FX options, a volatility smile with negative Risk Reversals is effectively indicating that the spot market for a given currency pair is in decline (puts over).

In similar lay man terms, can anyone help me understand what a negative butterfly in the vol smile implies for the underlying ccy pair?

Thanks and Regards, John
