Spike Controller
The maximum and average spreads in three different time ranges – last hour, 4 hours, and 24 hours.
This makes it easier to track if spreads have been high in general during the last day or if they have been volatile during the last 1 or 4 hours. If you have seen the spreads exceed these maximum readings, this means your broker might be making you pay extra in terms of spreads.
The chart of the benchmark interbank price high (ask) and low (bid) data for three different time ranges – last hour,4 hours,and 24 hrs. For navigation, daily high and low readings are marked with a green and red indicator respectively. The price movement range is also indicated in terms of pips and percentage in the same three time scales. If you have had your trades executed out of the high and low range, this might be a good indication of price manipulation.
The price movement chart marks all the economic news publications covered in our economic calendar programme. Any spread widenings are also plotted on the chart so you can see if they correlate with the economic news releases.
If there have been any particularly wide spreads we conclude the report of a pair with a close up look at the movement of the bid and ask sides during the time when the peak daily spread took place along with a short analysis of the particular spread.

    Trend has been shifting for this pair, but the biggest move was a drop of point 77% or 85 pips.

    US news releases shook up the spreads for this pair as well, but 5.4 pips is the most you should have seen.
    And Dollar/Yen's long-term average reaches point 56 pips, but the daily max is significantly higher and it reaches no less than 24.1 pips.
    The pair spiked by 2.49% or 295 pips as the Bank of Japan announced negative interest rates, but the rate has eased from its highest point at 121 45.
    The monetary policy statement was out at about 3:48 this morning, so let's see what happened.
    Spreads peaked a couple of minutes after the release, but do make sure your broker has not used this opportunity to charge you more than 24.1 pips.

    The pair dropped from the early high by a total of point 51% or 56 pips, but it has rebounded during the last 4 hours.
    Spreads were higher than usual for a number of ticks yesterday at 11 PM GMT, but 2.4 pips is the max you should have seen so far this week.
    The Cable’s long term average and maximum spreads are 1.19 and 3.9 pips respectively.
    Pound/Dollar has surged by point 53% or 76 pips to hit the daily high of 1 4324.
    Both of the sides stayed separated by more than usual for a while yesterday at 11 PM GMT here as well, but 3.9 pips is the most you should have been charged.
    Last up is the Dollar/Yen, which has a daily average spread of point 5 pips. Max separation has been 2 and a half pips.
    Greenback has been on a rise against the Yen and this pair has gained point 67% or 78 pips.
    Just like for the other two pairs in this review, spreads were at their highest point yesterday at 11 PM GMT, but anything far above the max of 2.5 pips shouldn’t be tolerated.
