Midday Snapshot
Details of the rate movement are given for each pair, this includes a chart of the rate trend between 00:00 and 12:00 GMT, the highest and lowest points within this time period, volatility, and the total percentage gained or lost over the session.
The trading activity is then compared and contrasted with the actual rate movement. For example, if the rate trend has generally been in-line with trader sentiment (i.e. a bullish rate movement and a bullish sentiment), then it is generally considered that traders have performed well over the session.
The general daily price movement is indicated with an icon, which has the following options: Flat, Downward, Sharply Down, Upward, and Sharply Up.
Details of the trading activity are also provided in terms of traded volume (a percentage in relation to the Dukascopy monthly average for each pair): Average, Low, High, Extremely Low, Extremely High.
Trader's sentiment (based on overall Dukascopy trader positions) is also indicated. A 'neutral' trader's sentiment is within a range of -15% to +15%, non-inclusive. A bullish reading is equal to or greater than +15% and a bearish reading is equal to or greater than -15%. Dukascopy considers readings greater than 35% as 'strongly' bullish or bearish.

    Trading has resumed on this week so let`s see how traders have managed to work out the rate movements during the morning session.
    Euro/Dollar has had a slow day – volatility is only 45 pips and only a slight gain was posted at noon. Turnover is 27% down from the monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is at a balance. Both the passive trading and the narrow price movement range suggest no major moves in funds are likely.
    Pound/Dollar has been moving higher and a gain of point 39% was recorded at midday. The Cable sees 34% less than average funds and sentiment of the traders is bearish, 27%short. Late rise makes losses more likely, but they should be cushioned by the passive trading.
    Dollar/Yen has been mostly trading sideways and traded volume is extremely low. Neutral sentiment of the traders is leaning towards the short side by 12%. No significant changes in funds are likely as trading has been passive and rate movement range narrow.
    Pound/Yen rose and uptrend has resulted in a gain of point 56%. Trading has been passive, volume is extremely low and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to move higher. Gradual rise has provided solid chances, but the passive trading is the limiting factor.
    Euro/Yen’s chart shows uptrend and a gain of point 31% was recorded at 12 o’clock. Turnover is 79% up from the pair’s monthly average and sentiment of the traders is bullish, long positions are in the lead by 29%. The rate did go per those forecasts, suggesting a successful morning session for investors.

    The Dukasopy TV Team is once again bringing you the Midday Snapshot where we take a look at how market participants have performed over the morning session.
    Euro/Dollar has been on a rise and it has resulted in a gain of point 42%. Traded volume is high and the neutral sentiment of the traders is at a balance. Uptrend suggests a successful morning session is more likely for those who had long positions.
    Pound/Dollar stood just slightly in the green at noon after walking in a total range of 89 pips. The Cable sees 29% more than average funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is leaning towards the long side by 11%. Both sides have had their profit chances as a single trend hasn’t formed.
    Dollar/Yen has dropped by 122 pips to stand close to 1% in negative territory at noon. Turnover is 41% up from the monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 4% long. Steep slide makes a successful morning session very much likely for bears.
    Pound/Yen took a steep slide and it was almost 1% in the red at midday. This pair sees less than half of the monthly average funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 12% short. There have been plenty of chances for those who were short, but the passive trading is the limiting factor.
    Euro/Yen’s day has been bearish and downtrend has resulted in a loss of point 49%. Traded volume is extremely low and sentiment of the traders is neutral, short positions are up by just 7%. Drop was good news for bears, but changes in funds should be limited by the passive trading.

    It`s time for the Midday Snapshot where we`ll see how traders have managed to work out the rate movements during the morning session on this Thursday.
    Euro/Dollar rose after the early decline and the pair stands point 17% in the green after 12 hours of trading. This pair sees a typical amount of funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is just 4% long. Bears had their chances early on, but the following uptrend was good news for bulls.
    Pound/Dollar gained almost 100 pips, but most of the gain was wiped out by a following decline. The Cable has attracted an average amount of funds and most of the traders have been bullish in their expectations. Trading should be successful if it was done before 8 o’clock in the morning.
    Dollar/Yen has plummeted by a massive 397 pips and the slide has resulted in a loss of close to 3%. Market players have traded with more than double the monthly average funds and sentiment of the traders is neutral, 11% long. Steep slide has brought solid profit chances for those who were short.
    Pound/Yen took a sharp slide as well and a massive loss of 2.83% was recorded at noon. Traded volume is low and the neutral sentiment of the traders is leaning towards the short side by 14%. There have been plenty of chances for the small majority of the traders that had short positions.
    Euro/Yen’s drop measures at 394 pips and the pair was 2.79% in the red at midday. Traded volume is average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 10% long. This should be an extremely successful morning session for bears.

    Pound/Dollar shot up hours into the trading day and a gain of point 45% has been posted. The Cable sees 22% less than typical funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 12% short. The late surge suggests a successful morning session is more likely for bulls.

    It's 12 PM GMT on this Friday, so let's look back at the morning session with the Midday Snapshot.
    Euro/Dollar has been moving lower for most of the session, losing 53 pips, and the pair was point 23% in the red at noon. Traded volume is in line with the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral at just 4% short. The downtrend makes success much more likely for bears.
    Pound/Dollar has been moving in waves, but the biggest move was a gain of 85 pips. The pair was point 44% up from the opening level at 12 o'clock. Trading has been typical in terms of volume, and the sentiment is neutral, although short positions prevail by 14%. Bulls have been in better positions so far.
    Dollar/Yen has had a bullish session, going up by 158 pips, and the total gain reached 1.2% at midday. Trading has been very active at more than twice the usual volume, but traders' sentiment again is neutral at just 1% short. Bulls have had some excellent opportunities, whereas bears faced plenty of risks.
    The bullish trend is even more pronounced for the Pound/Yen, which is up by no less than 304 pips or 1.65%. Traded volume is close to the usual amount, but most traders had anticipated a decline, as short positions are up by 33%. This makes losses very likely.
    And Euro/Yen is another Yen pair on the rise, as a gain of 156 pips leaves it point 97% in the green at 12 o'clock. This pair, however, sees less than half the usual funding, and the sentiment is neutral at 1% short. Trading should be successful for bulls, but the slow trading would limit their profits.

    The morning session is over on this Thursday, so let's see how well the market players have worked out the rate movements.
    Euro/Dollar went up by 52 pips late in the session, and the pair stood point 23% in the green at noon. Traded volume is in line with the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral, at a balance. The low volatility should limit any major shifts in funds.
    The Cable slipped after 7 o'clock, but a subsequent gain of 96 pips left it point 39% in the green at midday. Trading has been active, and the sentiment again is neutral at just 2% short. The overall trend has been more favourable for bulls, but bears did have some limited chances.
    Dollar/Yen's daily volatility reaches just 36 pips, and the rate was point 14% down from the opening level at 12 o'clock. Trading has been slow at less than half the usual volume, and traders' sentiment is neutral as long positions are up by 5%. Both the slow trading and narrow range movement should keep any profits or losses limited.
    Pound/Yen started moving higher after half past 8, gaining 115 pips, and the total increase reached point 24% at noon. Traded volume is 21% down from the monthly average, but the sentiment is bullish at 49% long. Profits are very likely, provided positions were not closed before the rise.
    And Euro/Yen's initial decline was followed by a gain of 64 pips, which left it a fraction in the green at midday. This pair, however, sees 59% less funding than usual, and the sentiment is neutral at 10% long. Bulls have been in better positions so far, but any profits will be limited by the slow trading.

    It's 12pm GMT, so let's have a look how traders have been performing this morning with the Midday Snapshot.
    Euro/Dollar has walked in a narrow range of 32 pips, leaving it point 17% in the green at noon. The pair has seen an average amount of funds. Trader's sentiment is bearish at 18% short. Losses for traders are likely, however the small volatility would have cushioned the impact.
    The Cable's volatility measures at 63 pips, and it stood slightly in the red at midday. The pair has seen a typical amount of funding. Trader's sentiment is neutral at 3% short, and the spike has provided both sides with opportunities and risks.
    Dollar/Yen's initial decline was followed by a rise 50 pips, which left it just a fraction south of the opening level. Traded volume is low and the sentiment of the traders is neutral at 4% long. Both sides had equal opportunities success depends on timing.
    Pound/Yen had a rise of 115 pips after 8.30AM, however it still ended slightly in the red at 12 o'clock. Traded volume is extremely low. The sentiment of traders is neutral a 10% long. Bears had their chances before 7AM, and the following rise could have provided traders in long positions with opportunities.
    Euro/Yen had a rise of 73 pips just after 7AM, leaving it point 15% in the green at 12PM. The pair has seen extremely low funding, but the sentiment of traders is neutral at 10% short. The general trend after 7 o'clock was more favourable for bulls.

    The morning session is over on this Tuesday, so it's time for the Midday Snapshot.
    The last 12 hours have been somewhat bullish for the Euro/Yen, and it's biggest move was a gain of 46 pips. The pair was point 29% in the green at noon. Traded volume is 32% up from the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral, at a balance. The uptrend makes success more likely for bulls.
    The Cable is up as well, and a gain of 106 pips left it point 64% up from the opening level after 12 hours of trading. Trading has been typical in terms of volume, and the sentiment is neutral at 13% short. Once again, the rate movement has been much more favourable for players with long positions.
    Dollar/Yen started moving higher after 7 o'clock, gaining 70 pips, and it stood point 33% in the green at midday. Traded volume is one third down from the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral at 9% short. Bulls have been in better positions so far, but the slow trading could limit the profits.
    Things look similar for the Pound/Yen, although the late rise is even more prononced, reaching 184 pips. The total gain was point 97% at 12 o'clock. Trading has been active, but sentiment is neutral, although short positions are up by 13%. This has been quite a day for bulls, but bears did face risks.
    And Euro/Yen's daily volatility of 92 pips also was posted during a rise, which left it point 63% up from the opening level at midday. Trading has been slow at less than half the usual volume, and most traders had anticipated a decline, as the sentiment is bearish at 28% short. Losses are quite likely, but the slow trading should soften the blow.
    I'm Celeste Skinner and that's how market players have been doing so far. We'll be tracking the latest developments throughout the day so check back to see whether the trend holds. Goodbye for now.

    We're halfway through this week's first trading day, so let's see how things have been shaping up for the market players.
    Euro/Dollar was point 1% in the green after walking in the total range of 40 pips. Traded volume is in line with the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral, although short positions are up by 13%. The narrow range movement should limit any shifts in funds.
    The Cable's initial decline was followed by a rise of 74 pips, which brought it back at the opening level at noon. Traded volume is about a third down from the monthly average, and the sentiment again is neutral at 8% long. Any profits or losses will probably be limited by the slow trading.
    Dollar/Yen's has had a rather bullish start of the week, and a gain of 67 pips left it point 18% in the green at 12 o'clock. Trading has been active, whereas the sentiment is neutral at 7% short. The uptrend makes success much more likely for bulls.
    Pound/Yen had a slow start, but it went up by 156 pips after 7 o'clock. The total gain reached point 17% at noon. Traded volume is less than half of the monthly average, and the sentiment is neutral, at a balance. Once again, the low volume suggests any changes in trading accounts will be limited.
    And Euro/Yen's biggest move was a gain of 96 pips. The pair stood point 28% in the green after 12 hours of trading. This pair, too, sees less than half the usual funding, but most traders indeed had anticipated a rise, as the sentiment is strongly bullish at 46% long. Trading should be successful, although a bolder approach would have increased the profits.

    We're halfway through the last trading day of the week, so let's take a look of the performance of the traders with the Midday Snapshot.
    First up is the Euro/Dollar which has walked in a relatively narrow range of 42 pips, but the pair sees an average amount of funds. Sentiment of the traders is neutral at 8% short. Rate movement has been generally flat, suggesting limited changes in trading accounts are likely.
    The Cable moved generally upwards through most of the morning session, volatility measures at 72 pips, but trading volumes are low. Trader's sentiment is neutral at 4% long. Upward pressure has been stronger so far, providing profit chances for those who were long.
    Next is the Dollar/Yen, which moved relatively flat before declining by 94 pips. Traded volume is high at 21% above the average. The sentiment of traders is neutral at 4% long. Bears had their chances after the high of 109 74 was reached.
    Pound/Yen reached the high early in the morning, followed by a decline of 101 pips. Traded volume was extremely low, 60% less than the average and the trader's sentiment is neutral at 12% long. The downtrend suggests profits are more likely for Bears, but the passive trading should limit moves in funds.
    Euro/Yen is the last pair for this report with volatility measuring at 82 pips. It was posted as the pair moved steeply down, while attracting a low amount of funding. Trader's sentiment is strongly Bullish at 39% long. Sharp decline means losses are more likely for investors, but they should be cushioned by the calm trading.

    Hello. You're watching the Midday Snapshot brought to you by the Dukascopy Forex TV Team. Here's a look at how traders have performed over the morning session.
    Euro/Dollar has walked in a total range of only 45 pips, but turnover is 42% up from the pair’s monthly average. Neutral sentiment of the traders leans towards the short side by 8%. Both sides have seen limited chances as the rate movement has been generally flat.
    Pound/Dollar rose after the steep slide and the pair stands point 32% in the red at noon. The Cable sees a typical amount of funds and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to head higher. Steep slide brought serious risks, but some chances were there during the bounce back.
    Dollar/Yen declined by a total of 49 pips and most of the loss was cancelled out as the rate rose from the daily low. Traded volume is low, 23% down from the monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 9% short. Trend has changed, providing chances for both sides, but the passive trading is the limiting factor.
    Pound/Yen took a slide to trade point 36% South of the opening level at 12 o’clock. This pair sees less than half of the monthly average funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is close to a balance. There have been plenty of chances for bears, but profits and losses shouldn’t be significant as trading has been slow.
    Euro/Yen dropped by 70 pips and a loss of point 2% was recorded at midday due to a late recovery. Traded volume is extremely low and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to move higher. Early hours were dangerous for traders, but the passive trading is what should help to minimize losses if timing of the trades was bad.

    It’s noon GMT on this Wednesday so let’s see how traders have performed during the morning session.
    Euro/Dollar has been on a slide and it has resulted in a loss of point 7%. Trading has been active, volume is high and sentiment of the traders is neutral, long positions are in the lead by only 2%. Steep slide makes a successful morning session very much likely for those who had short positions.
    Pound/Dollar rebounded from the low of 1 4201 and a slight loss was posted at noon. The Cable has attracted close to double the monthly average funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 4% short. Bears saw some solid chances during the downtrend, but the late bounce was good news for bulls.
    Dollar/Yen shot up by a total of 86 pips to trade point 6% in the green at 12 o’clock. Turnover is 82% up from the pair’s monthly average and most of the market players have been predicting the rate to decline. The bullish rate movement suggests losses for investors.
    Pound/Yen rose by 103 pips after 7 o’clock and it stood point 39% up from the opening level at midday. Traded volume is 52% up from the monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 11% short. Late rise puts bulls in better positions so far.
    Euro/Yen’s day has been relatively calm as volatility measures at only 48 pips and traded volume is low. Market players have been mostly bullish in their expectations. Both the flat rate movement and the passive trading suggest no major moves in funds are likely.
    I’m Sam Meredith and this is how the sentiment of the traders compares with the actual rate movements so far. We`ll be updating these stats every hour, so stay tuned.

    Euro/Dollar’s steep rise was followed by an equally sharp decline and the pair was back at the opening level at noon. Trading has been active, volume is high and the neutral sentiment of the traders is just 3% long. Both sides have had their chances as the rise was followed by a drop.
    Pound/Dollar shot up after 6 o’clock to stand point 53% in the green at midday. The Cable sees 24% less than typical funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is close to a balance. Profits are more likely for those who had long positions, but the calm trading is what should limit changes in funds.
    Dollar/Yen has been mostly trending higher and a gain of point 35% was posted after 12 hours of trading. Traded volume is average and the neutral sentiment of the market players is just 4% short. Uptrend has provided plenty of profit opportunities for those who were long.
    Pound/Yen moved sharply up and steep rise has resulted in a gain of almost 1%. Turnover is 30% up from the monthly average and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to head higher. It did go per those forecasts, suggesting profits for investors.
    Euro/Yen rose by a total of 90 pips, but some of the gains were given up in a following decline. Trading has been passive and the bullish sentiment of the traders is 24% long. Traders saw plenty of chances during the rise, but the passive trading is the limiting factor.

    Euro/Dollar has seen limited movement, declining sharply by 56 pips and mostly trading sideways. Total value of the deals is 46% up from the pair’s monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the market players is just 4% short. Decline has provided some chances for bears, but the rate movement has been mostly flat, limiting changes in funds for investors.

Traded volume is high, 52% up from the monthly average and the neutral sentiment of the traders is close to a balance. Bears had their chances during the early trading hours, but the change in trend was good news for bulls.
    Pound/Yen has shot up by more than 200 pips and it stood point 61% up from the opening level at midday. This instrument has attracted more than double the monthly average funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 4% short. Steep rise puts bullish market players in better positions for profits.
    Euro/Yen has been mostly trading sideways, but the pair has attracted 48% more than average funds. Neutral sentiment of the market players is leaning towards the short side by 10%. Both sides have seen some chances, but the generally flat rate movement is what should limit moves in funds.

    We have reached the midpoint of the last trading day of this week, so let`s see how market players have managed to work out the rate shifts.
    Euro/Dollar’s rate movement has been calmer than usual, volatility measures at only 45 pips, but the pair has attracted an average amount of funds. Sentiment of the traders is neutral, standing at 1% long. Both sides have seen some chances as the trend has shifted, but the generally narrow price movement range is the limiting factor.
    Pound/Dollar spiked hours into the trading day and the pair stood point 23% in the green at noon, after retreating from the daily high. The Cable sees just 18% less than typical funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is only 3% short. Spike has provided both sides with opportunities and risks.
    Dollar/Yen was back near the opening level at midday after walking in a total range of 63 pips. Turnover is 47% up from the pair’s usual and the neutral sentiment of the traders is close to a balance. Success depends on the timing of the trades as a single trend hasn’t formed.
    Pound/Yen’s surge was followed by a correction and a gain of point 35% was recorded at 12 o’clock. This pair sees more than double the monthly average funds and sentiment of the traders is neutral, at a balance. Rise was followed by a drop, providing both sides with their chances.
    Euro/Yen has also retreated from the daily high to stand only slightly in the green at midday. Market players have traded with 116% more than typical funds and the neutral sentiment of the traders is at a balance. Bulls had their chances early on, but the change in trend was good news for bears.

    It`s time for the Dukascopy Midday Snapshot where we`ll see how traders have managed to work out the rate movements during the morning session on this Thursday.
    Euro/Dollar reached the daily high of 1 1454 shortly before 7 o’clock, but a following slide has resulted in a loss of point 28%. Trading has been active, volume is almost double what the pair usually attracts and the neutral sentiment of the traders is 2% long. Bulls had their chances early on, but the change in trend was good news for bears.
    Pound/Dollar dropped by a total of slightly more than 100 pips and the pair stood point 37% in the red at noon. The Cable sees 20% less than typical funds and most of the traders have been forecasting the rate to head higher. Drop has brought risks for investors, but the calm trading should help to cushion losses.
    Dollar/Yen has had a bearish day so far and it was more than 1% in the red at midday. Trading has been active, volume is extremely high and the neutral sentiment of the traders is just 1% long. Steep slide has provided bears with plenty of profit opportunities.
    Pound/Yen has been on a slide as well and it has resulted in a loss of 1.44%. Turnover is a massive 210% up from the pair’s monthly average and sentiment of the traders is bullish, 15% long. Steep slide suggests losses are more likely for investors.
    Euro/Yen has plummeted by 220 pips and the pair was 1.35% down from the opening level 12 o’clock. Turnover is 160% up from the pair’s monthly average and sentiment of the traders is bearish, most have been forecasting the rate to move South. It did go per those forecasts, suggesting profits for investors.
