FX weekly — DXY and 14 currency pair levels and targets


The problem exchange rates in today’s markets are located within anchor currencies as EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD and NZD/USD. The current prices are far to low and all are responsible to drive markets and to create wider trade ranges. All suffer the effects of a higher DXY over the past 9 weeks.

The low prices to anchor currencies created a further correlation disjunction to wide rangers as GBP/AUD, EUR/AUD, EUR/NZD and GBP/NZD.

GBP/AUD on the way to 1.9970 highs on August 17 correlated to GBP/USD at +88%. As GBP/AUD dropped to 1.9200’s and GBP/USD at 1.2380, correlations today trade at +30% and -91% to AUD/USD.

EUR/AUD correlates to EUR/USD at – 49% and -93% to AUD/USD. EUR/AUD’s price is completely lost and trades without an anchor connection.

AUD/USD was never the concern as AUD/USD correlated to GBP/AUD at -94% on August 17 and today at – 91%. AUD/USD traded highs on August 17 at 0.6450 and opens this week at 0.6427. AUD/USD was never part of the GBP/AUD equation to correlations.

Correlations continue as EUR/NZD Vs EUR/USD at -54% and -94% to NZD/USD. GBP/NZD correlates to GBP/USD at +27% and -92% to NZD/USD.

Anchor currencies continue to trade far to low while wide rangers despite a healthy drop, trade overbought.

USD/JPY Vs JPY cross pair correlations

The bright side to correlations is USD/JPY correlates to GBP/JPY +96% and +32% to GBP/USD. EUR/JPY correlates to USD/JPY at +97% and -47% to EUR/USD.

The difference today is USD/JPY owns the JPY cross pairs as opposed to past months when USD/JPY shared a fairly 50/ 50 correlation to anchor currencies. EUR/JPY for example correlated to EUR/USD at +50% and +50 to USD/JPY. JPY cross pairs once trapped are now free to travel alongside USD/JPY.
