This is the primary Dukascopy Spike Controller, providing you with Thursday’s benchmark interbank price data for the three non-cross majors.
Euro/Dollar’s spreads have averaged at point 28 pips during the last 24 hours, peaking at 2.2 pips.
The pair has declined by a total of 1.12% or 119 pips to hit the daily low of 1 0518.
Spreads were elevated up to 2.2 pips yesterday at 11 PM GMT and both of the sides moved 1.3 pips apart today at 9 o’clock as the German IFO Survey was released.
The Cable’s long term average spread is slightly above the 1 pip level and maximum separation has been 4.6 pips.
Pound/Dollar shot up yesterday by point 89% or 110 pips to hit the daily high at 1 2470.
News reports don’t match the time of the peak spread here – both of the sides were separated by more than usual for a while yesterday at 11 PM GMT, but 4.6 pips is the biggest gap you should have seen.
Last up is the Dollar/Yen, which has long term average and maximum spreads of point 44 and 3.5 pips respectively.
Greenback has been on a surge against the Yen, gaining a massive 2.32% or 257 pips to hit the high at 113 53.
Spreads were at their highest point yesterday at 11 PM GMT here as well, but make sure your broker hasn’t charged you more than 3.5 pips.
I’m Jack Everitt and that’s it for Thursday’s main Spike Controller, but we`ll be updating these stats on an hourly basis, so stay tuned.
