    I don't trade the currencies at all. But I do trade the physical commodities, and they're being heavily influenced by the dollar these days.

    What futures symbol can I punch into my platform (NinjaTrader + Rithmic) in order to get a good idea of how the dollar is doing?
  2. Generally when the dollar moves down, stocks move up. Same with the bond market. If the euro is shooting up dollar is going down. Same with crude. That will get you started.

    I'm already trading some of the energy complex, so I'm definitely seeing the dollar's influence.

    I was looking for something specific... something similar to the DXY. (Or is there a futures version of DXY?)
