How to Use Currency Crosses to Trade the Majors

Even if you don’t ever want to trade the currency crosses and simply stick to trading the majors, you can use crosses to help you make better forex trading decisions.

Here’s an example…

Currency crosses can provide clues about the relative strength of each major currency pair.

Let’s say you see a buy signal for EUR/USD and GBP/USD but you can only take one trade.

Which one do you take?

Simply looking at your crystal ball and guessing isn’t likely to result in the right answer.

To find the right answer, you would look at EUR/GBP cross.

If EUR/GBP is trending downward, this indicates that the pound is relatively stronger than the euro at the moment.

So the right answer would be to buy GBP/USD instead of EUR/USD due to the pound’s relative strength against the euro.

Since the euro is weaker, relative to the pound, if it proves to strengthen against the U.S. dollar, it is likely to strengthen LESS than the pound.

If the U.S. dollar weakens across the board, GBP/USD you would make more pips since it would rally higher than EUR/USD.

So GBP/USD is the better trade.

 

How to Use Currency Crosses to Trade the Majors
You can do this relative strength analysis on any of the major currency pairs.

 

Know Which Currency Cross to Use

Let’s say you’re bearish on the U.S. dollar. How will you trade?

  • Can’t decide whether to buy EUR/USD or sell USD/CHF? Look at EUR/CHF.
  • Can’t decide whether to buy USD/CHF or USD/JPY? Look at CHF/JPY.
  • Can’t decide whether to buy EUR/USD or sell USD/JPY? Look at EUR/JPY.
  • Can’t decide whether to buy GBP/USD or sell USD/CHF? Look at GBP/CHF.
  • Can’t decide whether to buy GBP/USD or sell USD/JPY? Look at GBP/JPY.

So always remember, looking at currency cross pairs could give you an idea of the relative strength of a particular currency.

观察交叉盘进行直盘交易

       即使你并不打算交易交叉货币对,只是想交易主要的美元直盘,你也可以利用交叉货币对帮助你做出更好的交易决策。

       下面就是一个例子。

       交叉货币对能够提供每种主要货币对之间的相对强弱关系线索。

       比如说,你看到欧元/美元以及英镑/美元都发出了买入信号,但问题是你只能进行一种货币对的交易。

       你应该选择哪种呢?

       如果你只是看着你的水晶球,并开始猜测结果,你可能不会因此而得得到好的答案。

       为了获得正确的答案,你可以观察欧元/英镑交叉盘。如果欧元/英镑正在走低,这意味着,英镑相对于欧元在此时更加的强劲。

       所以,正确的答案应该是买入英镑/美元,而非欧元/美元,因为英镑较欧元要更强。

       由于欧元较英镑表现要弱,如果欧元表现要强于美元,那么,欧元/美元的强势要逊于英镑/美元。

       如果美元全盘走软,选择做多英镑/美元,你可能会获得更多的回报,因为英镑/美元的涨势将好于欧元/美元。

       所有说,英镑/美元是更好的交易选择。

  

       你也可以针对任一主要货币对进行相对走势强弱分析。。。

              ● 难以决定到底是买入欧元/美元或卖出美元/瑞郎?还是看看欧元/瑞郎吧。

              ● 难以决定是买入美元/瑞郎还是美元/日元?看看瑞郎/日元吧。

              ● 难以决定是买入欧元/美元还是美元/日元?看看欧元/日元报。

              ● 难以决定是买入英镑/美元还是卖出美元/瑞郎?看看英镑/瑞郎吧。

              ● 难以决定是买入英镑/美元还是卖出美元/日元?看看英镑/日元吧。

       所以,请始终记住,观察交叉货币对的走势,能够该你提供特定货币对的相对强弱线索。
