Dollar Index



What are these indexes?

The goal of any dollar index to to assess how the US Dollar is doing overall as a currency. One of the most popular symbols today is the Dollar Index by ICE – denoted as the DXY. Dow Jones and FXCM developed an alternative to the DXY with a different formula. It’s a newer and relatively simpler take based on just four popular currencies to contend with the arguably outdated and more complex ICE DXY formula.

How each index is calculated
The ICE Index is geometrically weighted on international trade data. The geometric weighting means that relative currency hedges change by the value of the index— which makes it costly for market makers to hedge and make markets on appropriately. The outdated weights mean that it’s essentially an inverse Euro chart.

The DJ FXCM Index is arithmetically weighted using values from January 1, 2011—well-after the inception of the euro. It’s designed to mimic actual USD-long positions vs the AUD, JPY, GBP, and EUR. It’s substantially easier to make markets on and continue to see growing use—both from market makers and users.

Gold is currently completing an eventual Cypher pattern. Although, the price has already gone quite low, it can break 1100 levels as the Dollar Index hasn´t yet completed the last move to the upside. Nevertheless, due to a great Risk/Reward levels, small longs on Gold can be added as the target price is really high: I believe we can reach a 141.40% extension of ...

GBPUSD - Don't Rush Into It

After a sell off in the UK Pound from the election last week, we saw a hawkish BOE this week. Well... another flip flop in the market that might have left traders confused. Here's my perspective on GBPUSD - I believe we still have more down side for this pair, perhaps towards the 1.2510 area. Technical analysis wise - 1) We have a bearish impulse formed, and ...

Currently the Dollar Index is hard to predict, it can go either way and on neither time frame there's a clear trend. So I have placed the daily and the 4 hour next to each other to see if we can make a prediction. First the daily time frame that will tell the trend for the next week. There's A LOT of room down to the lower range of the bigger channel and some ...
