Currency Strength Indicator

Currency strength indicator

One of the main features of trading in the Forex market is that trading takes place with a financial instrument (currency pair) consisting of two currencies of any state. This, in turn, determines the specifics of the fundamental analysis of the news background for the two currencies. Each pair at a certain interval for different reasons, both fundamental and market, shows strength or weakness relative to the other, which in turn forms price fluctuations and trends in the market. This characteristic of couples has a cyclical nature.

For a professional trader, knowledge and the ability to determine the strength and direction of a trend is a prevailing skill. Currency Strength indicator, allows you to determine the strength or weakness of the currency, thereby determining the strength or weakness of the trend accordingly. This knowledge is especially necessary when used in trend trading strategies.

When the lines of the indicator are built, the value of the MA indicator of a particular currency in the pair is fixed. MA is a moving average, the corner of which is easily defined by the trend. Further, on the basis of the received values, the average angle of inclination for all currency indices is calculated. When calculating, the indicator takes into account the volume of the tick and displays data only on currencies on the current pair, this allows to increase the speed.

Thus, if the line of a certain currency is above zero, it means that the currency is more expensive relative to other currencies in the pairs involved in the calculation and construction of this indicator.

Currency Strength signals can be divided into two conditional groups. The first and most obvious is the use of currency index line intersections. That is, at the moment when the index line of one currency crosses another, forming a cross it indicates the growth of the strength of the currency in relation to others, and as a consequence to the continuation of the originated trend.

Currency strength indices move in a certain range of values, hence the second group of signals, the possibility of using the Currency Strength indicator to determine local zones of overbought/oversold of a certain currency. Overbought/oversold zones are defined empirically. The screenshot below shows 2 zones above/below the zero mark, crossing which the indicator signals to us about overbought/oversold of this currency.
