Trading the EUR/USD
In normal market conditions, EUR/USD tends to trade by the pip. This is unlike other currency pairs where prices can trade by several pips at a time. This means that if EUR/USD is trading at 1.2513/15, you're likely to find traders keen to buy at 10, 11 and 12 and traders keen to sell at 16, 17 and 18. Tight spreads make it possible to profit from very small changes in prices.
The sheer number of market participants makes it impossible for any one investor to move the EUR/USD in a meaningful way. For this reason, EUR/USD tends to be less volatile than other currency pairs. And when price changes happen, they tend to be driven by news events and data releases.
