    Default Top ten most volatile currencies

    Hey guys...

    Can we create a list of the top ten most volatile currencies... Obviously Eurusd tops it off. but what about the rest..

    P.S. I have noticed that EurAud is strangley moves a lot of pips, but it is not regarded as the most volatile.
    Can you please explain.

    For me the 3 tops are: gbp/jpy, eur/jpy, gbp/usd
    There is only one side to the market; and it is not the
    bull side or the bear side, but the right side.

    On this gap open we see a bull trap set by bears trying to eat raccoons in the upward secondary tick pattern that is divergent to our Proprietary order flow indicator. You can see the x rated exhaustion level by which all of the sheep will be pulled in and sheared by the smart money

    You're going to see the most movement from GJ, EJ, and GU during London markets.

    Here's a handy reference of average pip range for the major pairs for each day of the week. If you're interested, look at the table at the top of the page: Best Days of the Week to Trade | When Can You Trade Forex? | Learn Forex Trading

    Don't forget it is not only about pip movement, but a pairs movement in proportion to it's trading costs. I trade asia full time, and while the Kiwi quite often has some nice movement, it's trading costs with my broker are double that of the Aussie for example. At the moment, the Aussie is moving nicely in asia, as is the Euro, the yen pairs are struggling to offer something worth while.
