The Currency Index indicator computes an “index” using an un-weighted geometric mean of several currency pairs. This is similar to the US Dollar Index (USDX) and FXCM’s USDOLLAR. However, it does this, not just for the USD, but for 7 other currencies too. That’s 8 major currencies in total: USD, EUR, GBP, CHF, JPY, AUD, CAD and NZD.
The “index” is computed for one currency at a time, which requires 7 currency pairs. For example, to compute the “USD index” it uses EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CHF, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, USD/CAD and NZD/USD.
The “index” is normalized so that it has a nominal value of 10000 on 1/1/2011; this is similar to FXCM’s USDOLLAR.
The resulting “index” can be treated as a synthetic instrument (although only close prices are available, there is no high or low). You can perform the majority of standard technical analysis techniques with it, including drawing trend lines, marking support / resistance, etc. as well as using technical indicators such as moving averages, RSI, Bollinger Bands and many others.
