Currency Strength Indicator


EdFuk

Question

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to find a good currency strength indicator for MT4. I downloaded the free momentum meter from forexsignals but it only seems to work with BlueBerry Markets. Can anyone suggest a good one to compare the strength of the 8 major currencies against each other?

 

Many thanks,

 

Ed

HI, did you check out the IG add-on Correlation matrix and Correlation Trader from the Apps package?

No I haven’t looked at that but I will. Does that show the relative strength of a currency though?

Does anyone know how they calculate the relative strength of currencies?

No problem, if you are still on mt4 there are some downloadable ones from mql5 web site, I have loads but can't load them onto this new forum platform like on you could on the old one however you don't really need a constantly updating one, a periodic check on a web site is usually fine. My preference is probably the one where each currency has it's own line so then a simple case of matching a high one to a low one.

Yes I'm most certainly on MT4 and did download a Currency strength Indicator but it doesn't seem to work, I just get flat lines for all the major currencies. Any ideas?

 

Also, I have the IG apps in MT4 but can't seem to find the correlation matrix. Any ideas where that is?

 

Many thanks,

 

Ed

    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
