This is the primary Dukascopy Spike Controller report for this week’s final trading day, which is the 14th of October.
A quarter of a pip is the daily average spread for the Euro/Dollar. Both of the sides were 2.8 pips apart yesterday.
Long term high and low difference is 55 pips and it was posted as the rate headed South towards the low at just slightly above the 1 10 level.
Spreads were elevated for a number of ticks yesterday at a half past noon GMT during the US data run, but 2.8 pips is the biggest gap you should have seen.
Pound/Dollar’s spreads have averaged at just slightly above the 1 pip mark over the past 24 hours, peaking at 3 and a half pips.
Trend has been changing and the biggest move is a drop of point 86% or 105 pips.
Both of the sides stayed separated for a while yesterday as the US data was released at 12:30 PM, but 3.5 pips is the line that shouldn’t have been crossed.
Last up is the Dollar/Yen, which has long term average and maximum spreads of point 38 and 2.5 pips respectively.
Greenback has surged against the Yen by more than 1% or 109 pips to reach the high of 104 42.
Spreads were bumped slightly higher yesterday at a half past noon GMT by the US data here as well, but 2.5 pips is the most you should have been charged.
