Have you considered reducing your trade size?
If you trade one micro lot (1,000 units of base currency), then you are risking about 10 cents per pip on most currency pairs. That means, you could risk 500 pips on a trade, and that would be about $50.
When you use trades sizes that are appropriate for your account, then the typical pip range (average volatility) might no longer be the determining factor for you in choosing currency pairs.
