The market overview lets you quickly compare price movements on different timescales.
The overview shows three gauges, for the price movement during the last 60 minutes, 24 hours, and 5 days.
Each gauge shows the current price in relation to the high-low range (with prices). A gauge which is
mostly blue means that the current price is towards the top end of the range; orange means that the price
is towards the lower end of the range. The inner bar then shows the open price for the period, and the
corresponding % change.
Below the gauges are three simple candle charts, letting you compare short-term market activity on
the M5, M15 and H1 timeframes.
The AUDUSD currency pair is the abbreviation for the Australian dollar and U.S. dollar currency pair or cross. Trading
this currency pair is also known as trading the "Aussie". The currency pair is one of the most aggressive currency
pairs in the financial markets and is the sixth highest pair for trading in the world, accounting for around 7% of the
worldwide currency trades annually. The pair is affected by factors that influence the value of the Australian dollar
and/or the U.S. dollar in relation to each other and other currencies. This includes geographical factors such as the
production of commodities (coal, iron ore, copper) in Australia, political factors such as the business environment in
China (a major customer for Australian commodities), and interest rate influences. The interest rate differential
between the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Federal Reserve (Fed) will affect the value of these currencies
when compared to each other.
