FX Correlations

Recommended Posts

Trading FX these are the sort of indicators you need, matching what is currently strong vs what is weak, not stuff on patterns and macd, rsi or whatever.

The first pic is from Nov and out of date but the second is of yesterday, maybe I should include something like this in the daily dashboard?

Vote a like for yes or a sad for don't bother.

No TA for currency pairs?

The key as always is to avoid chop and get aboard directional moves. In any market when price is bouncing around in a tight range an auction is taking place, once the auction is finished (run out of either buyer or sellers) price must start a range expansion phase to find a new level for the auction to restart. It's those range expansion moves that you are looking to ride.

Matching strong vs weak currencies means directional moves are more likely and more reliable but you would still need to apply some sort of TA to trigger your entries (breakouts and pullbacks).

Years ago there was a dedicated web site that plotted individual currency relative strength on a chart but has since closed down. I'm looking at a couple of indicators that do a similar job like the one below but need the market to open to load them. 

Most correlation charts look to compare currency pairs but it's not the same thing.

There is also pair strength which can also useful;

Being the biggest and most heavily manipulated market, it doesn't surprise me that trading FX is so treacherous and unprofitable for retail traders.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
