Thank you very much for the PDF attachments.

5+ trillions a day is large indeed, but there is something that still bugs me.

They say that if a market has thicker liquidity, it would be less volatile than a market that has thinner liquidity.

So why is the forex market remain so volatile (with lots of whipsaws, reversals, gaps, and sharp sudden moves)?

Isn't it supposed to have lower volatility?

I'm not dabbling into the mechanics too deep, so i can't give you a good theory for that .. maybe others can,
if what you mean is E/U volatility for past few months (will be over soon anyway ), given the fundamental factors behind it, i can only think that's pretty normal to happen.
