New to FX markets. From what IÃ¢â¬â¢ve gathered in the past couple months, correlations (aka, directional relationships, inter-relationships, parallel vs. inverse) seems to be an overlooked and under estimated and even misunderstood part of what a novice trader needs to be keenly aware of from the get go when learning FX. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s taken me weeks to finally see how important Ã¢â¬ËcorrelationÃ¢â¬â¢ awareness is when trading currencies. When first introduced to FX, I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t pay attention to this at all; I do now! Having said that, IÃ¢â¬â¢m getting past the novice stage and into intermediate. Looking to get as much insight into correlations / directional relationships as I can before I move on. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve come across some good links to give the correlation numbers for different periods of time. But I am looking for more info than what these numbers offer. OandaÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬ËHeatMapÃ¢â¬â¢ version to visually show correlations is something different; but also looking for anything out there that goes further; something I may not be aware of as a novice, or are the links below all I would need to focus on? Any articles, info, links, etc, to pass on would be helpful to get as much insight into correlations as possible. http://www.mataf.net/en/analysis-correlation.htm http://members.cox.net/dmrc/Markets/Forex_Correlations.htm http://fxtrade.oanda.com/currencyCorrelations/index.html http://fxtrade.oanda.com/currencyCorrelations/heatmap.html Also, Having printed out these pages above, I noticed the numbers for the same time periods differ. Some numbers are the same but others are different. Example; aud/usd and eur/usd for 1 month period on Oanda link shows .74 vs. ..FXDailyÃ¢â¬â¢s .55 for same period of 1 month. Is there a reason why? Are there different mathematical approaches to get correlations? If so, then which numbers do I follow? I would have thought the numbers from site to site would be nearly the same. Also, How do I get one chart to visually show the correlation between any specific two currencies but without printing out two charts? This picture below is what IÃ¢â¬â¢m looking to do to visually see how and when they are parallel or inversed; looking for various time frames as well. Is there a link online to get a visual correlation of specific currencies? I can basically do this by printing two charts, but would like to get them on one page. Thanks.
