 Near the bottom of the page, you will find table of the Top Movers.  This shows what currency pairs have moved the most in the last day, the last week and the last month.  Here is the latest example:

Traders use this information to get a quick guage of what markets are moving the most.  A look at this current table shows that the biggest moving pairs in both the last day and last week all included the JPY.  Since all pairs were moving down, this means that the JPY has been getting stronger.  Savvy traders will immediately look to take advantage of this information by looking for selling opportunities in the pairs listed.  Trading with the momentum allows one the possibility of being in on some of the big moves that the FX markets are known for.  The Top Movers table is an easy way to identify that momentum.
