How Cross Currency Pairs Affect Dollar Pairs

Let’s pretend the Fed announces they will raise interest rates. The market quickly starts buying the U.S. dollar across all major currencies….EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall while USD/CHF and USD/JPY rise.

You were short EUR/USD and were pleased to see price move in your favor making you some pips, but right before you were about to break out the cigar, you notice your friend who was long USD/JPY made a lot more pips than you.

How Cross Currency Pairs Affect Dollar Pairs

You’re like “What’s up with that yo?”

You compare the charts of EUR/USD and USD/JPY and see that USD/JPY made the bigger move. It broke through a major technical resistance level and shot up 200 pips while EUR/USD barely shot down 100 pips and failed to break a major support level.

You’re thinking to yourself, “If the U.S. dollar was being bought across the board, then how come my EUR/USD trade looks so weak compared to my friend’s USD/JPY trade?”

This is due to the currency crosses! In this particular example, EUR/JPY.

When USD/JPY broke through its major resistance level, the combination of stop losses being hit and breakout traders jumping on the bandwagon pushed it even higher.

Since buying more USD/JPY weakens the yen, this would cause EUR/JPY (and possibly other yen-based pairs) to break through its major resistance level, once again hitting stops and attracting breakout traders, pushing EUR/JPY even higher.

Cross currency pairs can act as parachutes.

This causes the euro to strengthen and slows down the descent of your EUR/USD trade. The EUR/JPY cross buying acts a “parachute” and this is why EUR/USD didn’t move as much or as fast as the USD/JPY.

So even if you only trade the major currencies, cross currency pairs still have an effect on your trades!

交叉盘如何影响到美元货币对

       我们假设美联储宣布其将会采取加息措施。市场上的美元兑主要货币的买盘迅速涌现。欧元/美元、英镑/美元下跌,而美元/瑞郎以及美元/日元上涨。

       你选择做空欧元/美元,并很高兴的看到,汇价的走势令你不断获利,但是,当你准备满意的点起一根雪茄时,你忽然发现,你选择做多美元/日元的朋友获得的点数收益要超过你不少。

  


       你会问,这到底是怎么回事?

       你对欧元/美元以及美元/日元走势图进行了对比,发现美元/日元变动幅度要更大。美元/日元突破某一重大技术阻力位,涨势超过200点,而欧元/美元仅仅只下跌了100点,且并未跌破某一关键支撑。

       你会自己问自己,如果美元全盘受到每盘支持,那么,为什么欧元/美元走势相对于美元/日元走势要弱呢?

       这和交叉货币对有关。在本例中,有关欧元/日元。

       当美元/日元突破其主要阻力位时,在汇价触发止损买盘的双从推动下,美元/日元进一步走高。

       由于更多的美元/日元买盘会导致日元走软,这可能促使欧元/日元(或其他日元交叉盘)也突破其主要阻力位,一旦触发止损买盘,并吸引寻求突破行情的交易者入场,欧元/日元将会进一步走高。

  


       这会导致欧元走强,并减缓欧元/美元的下跌势头。在这里,欧元/日元买盘取到了关键性作用,这也是为什么,欧元/美元跌势并没有出现像美元/日元那么大的原因。

       所以说,即使你只是交易涉及到美元的主要货币对,交叉盘仍然会对你的交易造成影响。
