Frequently asked questions

Our currency strength meter is updated every 5 minutes. Please note that the meter will only refresh when the Forex market is open. When the markets are closed the meter is paused until they open again on Monday morning.

This is important to understand particularly if you are trading the markets on a smaller time frame. A gap-open on a Monday may give you a false impression on the strength or weakness of a particular currency. That’s why it is important to visually confirm what the currency strength meter is telling you about a currencies strength.

We use the standard formula to calculate the percentage of change for a particular currency pair as follows:

Current Price – Old Price / Old Price * 100

We perform this calculation across 28 Forex pairs for each of the 4 time frames and then group the pairs together to work out the underlying strength of a given currency.

To give you an example, here’s what the calculation may look like for the U.S Dollar (USD):

AUDUSD: -2.1% (+2.1%)*
EURUSD: -3.8% (+3.8%)*
GBPUSD: -1.4% (+1.4%)*
NZDUSD: -3.5% (+3.5%)*
USDCAD: 2.6%
USDCHF: 1.7%
USDJPY: 3.9%

USD Strength = 19%

* We invert positive or negative values when the USD is the quote of a pair, for base pairs the value remains unchanged.

Our free currency strength suite is designed to give you a quick overview of the underlying movement of each individual currency in the Forex market.

If we know that the US Dollar is the strongest currency and the Japanese Yen is the weakest then we may decide that the USD/JPY Forex pair offers us the best trading opportunity with low risk and the possibility of a high reward.

Ultimately, it is down to you to decide how to use these tools. Most traders use the strength meter alongside an existing strategy as a way to trade in the same direction as the underlying strength of the markets.
