- Add a 200-period SMA to this indicator
- Shrink the chart so you can assess a large time period
- Select your desired timeframe
- Measure the floor level and set this value as the min
- Measure the level of the 200-period SMA and set this as the average
- Measure the peak levels and set this as Max.
EUR/TRY Cost as a Percent of the Trading Range
With the volatility values obtained from the above table, we can see how the cost varies as the volatility of the market varies. All we did is, got the ratio between the total cost and the volatility values and converted into percentages.
ECN Model Account
Spread = 40 | Slippage = 3 | Trading fee = 3
Total cost = Spread + Slippage + Trading Fee = 40 + 3 + 3 = 46
STP Model Account
Spread = 44 | Slippage = 3 | Trading fee = 3
Total cost = Spread + Slippage + Trading Fee = 44 + 3 + 0 = 47
The Ideal way to trade the EUR/TRY
The EURTRY is a pair with enough volatility and liquidity. Hence, this makes it simpler to trade this exotic-cross currency.
From the above table, we can see that the percentage values are all within 200%. This means that the costs are low irrespective of the timeframe and volatility you trade.
Digging it a little deeper, the costs are higher when the volatility of the market is low and lower for higher volatilities. However, we cannot ignore the fact that this pair is highly volatile. For example, the maximum volatility on the 1H timeframe is as high as 456. So, traders must be cautious before trading this pair.
When it comes to the best time of the day to trade this pair, it is ideal for entering this pair during those times of the day when the volatility is in between the average values because this will ensure decent volatility as well as low costs.
Furthermore, traders can easily reduce their costs by placing orders as ‘limit’ and ‘stop’ instead of ‘market.’ In doing so, the slippage on the trade will not be considered in the calculation of the total costs. So, in our example, the total cost will reduce by three pips.
