The last 24 hours have brought plenty of volatility in the forex markets, so make sure you haven’t been overcharged.
Euro/Dollar’s long-term average and peak spreads reach point 28 and 5.2 pips, respectively.
The pair started moving higher after 6 o’clock yesterday afternoon, gaining a total of 1.45% or 159 pips.
The Fed released its latest monetary policy statement at 6 PM.
Spreads peaked just as the release came out, but 5.2 pips is the most you should have seen.
Pound/Dollar’s spreads have averaged at 1.26 pips over the last 24 hours, maxing out at 9.6 pips.
The Cable is up as well, having gained 1.36% or 178 pips, although it has declined from its daily high of 1 3250.
The Fed shook up the spreads for this pair as well, but you should really question anything above 9.6 pips.
And Dollar/Yen’s spreads have averaged at point 52 pips over the last 24 hours. The daily peak reaches 6.3 pips.
This pair has actually seen a decline, as it’s down by 1.48% or 157 pips.
And, once again, spreads were at their highest as the Fed statement came out, but 6.3 pips is as high as they went.
