01:45 MIN 30

The trading week is coming to an end, but don't let your guard down and keep checking your broker's price feed with the Primary Spike Controller. Euro/Dollar’s spreads have averaged at point 23 pips during the last 24 hours, peaking at 1.6 pips. Trend has been shifting and the biggest move is a decline of point 55% or 63 pips. Last 24 hours have been calm in terms of spreads, max of just 1.6 pips took place yesterday at a half past noon GMT during the US data run. The Cable’s long term average spread is point 95 pips and max separation has been 3 pips. Pound/Dollar has moved South from the high of 1 3187, declining by point 58% or 77 pips. US data run sent the spreads higher yesterday at a half past noon GMT here as well, but 3 pips is the most you should have been charged. Last up is the Dollar/Yen, which has long term average and maximum spreads of point 41 and 2.7 pips respectively. The pair hit the daily low of 99 85 after dropping by point 64% or 64 pips, but most of the loss was recovered. Spreads were above their usual level for a number of ticks yesterday at a half past noon GMT as the US data was released, but 2.7 pips is the line that shouldn’t have been crossed.
