Ranges at 3 and 600 derived from the 3 month and 6 month interest rate first introduced in the 1930’s. Most vital is the 3 month as the first constant to markets. The 3 month rate held as a constant in the 1940’s as the Fed began interest rate control to the 3 month rate so inflation would trade beneath.


As markets became settled in the modern day, 300 and 600 ranges became a main component to trade markets and view prices on a long term basis. The common theme to prior long term trades posted over many past years is 600 pip targets. The recent JPY trades all achieved 700 pips or a 100 pip bonus.

On a daily trade basis, prices trade 3 and 6 intervals to replicate daily interest rate moves.

The concept to 3 and 600 will remain a constant to markets for years and possibly decades in the future.
