The average daily pip range on Euro/Dollar continues to fall

Since 2009 the average number of pips that Euro/Dollar has traded between the high and the low on a daily basis has fallen fairly consistently:

  • 170 pips in 2009
  • 152 pips in 2010
  • 159 pips in 2011
  • 108 pips in 2012
  • 98 pips in 2013

Year February March
2009 207 218
2010 145 145
2011 133 127
2012 125 112
2013 124 111
2014 73  57 (after 3 days)

The table shows that February and March have very similar for pip ranges in the past 5 years, with March, if anything a little bit lower than February. The daily pip range for February 2014 was 73. After just 3 days of March this average daily pip range is even lower at 57!
