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.

    • Thank you @CharlotteIG   GSH has permaticker 166998 with sec filings at CIK # 0001012139 if that helps? Kind regards,
    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
