A currency represents an economy and the exchange rate of a currency in comparison to other currencies determined by how good this economy is doing in comparison to other economies and if you are trading Forex then the relationship between a currency and other currencies can give you lots of useful information.
Currency strength is determined by how its exchange rate moves in comparison to a basket of other currencies and averaged based on the number of its pairs that’s used on the strength model.
The value that is given by the strength model to a currency can be used for finding the strongest and weakest currencies and you will be able to trade former against the later.
Our strong and weak indicator calculates the strength of a currency by the amount of its percentage change on x previous bars on a given time frame across its pairs and summing up the return on each pair then dividing it by the number of pairs.
