The Fed rate hike shook up the currency markets yesterday, so make sure your broker has not charged you more than their fair share. Now, the average and peak long-term spreads for the Euro/Dollar have been point 29 and 5 pips, respectively. The pair started moving South yesterday afternoon, losing a total of 1.24% or 140 pips from its daily peak at 1 1296. Couple of US news releases were out at... Еще 12:30 PM yesterday, and spreads peaked at 5 pips just as the data came out. The Cable's long-term average reaches point 77 pips, and the daily max stands at exactly 10 pips. The Fed statement sent the pair lower, and the total loss reaches slightly more than 1% or 129 pips. And, in fact, the Fed announcement, which came out at 6 PM, was also the time of the peak spread. Both sides separated for a number of ticks, but 10 pips is the most you should have seen. And Dollar/Yen's spreads have averaged at point 38 pips over the last 24 hours, peaking at 4 pips. This pair actually declined ahead of the Fed, losing 1.39% or 153 pips, but it has since recovered some ground. Spreads peaked just ahead of the rate hike, but 4 pips is as high as they went.
