    Default Where can I find the average movement of pips per bar for various timeframes?

    I'd like to see the average pip range per bar for various timeframes on Eur/Usd, Eur/Jpy, and Usd/Jpy. Is there someplace I can find this info?

    Not talking about the average pip range per hour, or per market. I'm looking specifically for the average movement of pips per bar.

    I've attached a picture in case I'm not making sense. In the picture you can see each bar on a M1 timeframe and each bar is about the same size, around 3 pips each. Of course, on daily, weekly, charts the bars will be bigger. Is there someplace that tells you the average pip range per bar? *And yes, I know not to trade lower than daily timeframes. The picture is just an easy example. ;p

    Try average true range (ATR). Just put it on the timeframe you want and set the period to 1 and it should give you each bar's pip movement.

    That's close to what I'm looking for. Is there a website which displays the historic data?

    You could write an indicator, or export the data and analyse in excel.
