Pound/Dollar has gained close to 1% or 114 pips to reach the high of 1 2369.

And last up is the Dollar/Yen, which has long term average and maximum spreads of point 41 and 4.6 pips respectively.

Spreads were volatile yesterday at 6 PM GMT here as well, but 4.6 pips is the line that shouldn’t have been crossed.
