Which FX markets tend to have greatest price action?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Do certain markets on average have higher price action and volume?  And if so which ones? I've been trading GBP/US dollar and now i'm reluctant to change purely through habit.  Also does the margin requirement for each market influence which ones you trade?  It makes a big difference in what you can afford if a rate is 13000 vs 7000 for example if your position size is large.

Thanks

Go to google and type in "most volatile forex pairs" and you'll get a list of the biggest daily pip movements for each pair. Remember though, the cross pairs and exotics have bigger spreads.

If you like volatility and have already been trading GU then I suggest you stick with that pair.

    • So trading has opened and the value of the shares is still wrong. Time to move brokers. Matter for the FSA?

    • So, I contacted IG support. They said it would be a WEEK before I could access my shares. A WEEK! Any chance of profit gone, left with the pickings after the market has taken whatever value it wants out of the new company. Still waiting for feedback from 'the enterprise team', whoever they are. FT has my holding up by 28.6% in shares, plus whatever premium the market adds (currently around 7%). Unacceptable.
