|The US dollar remains the world’s foremost currency and the standard against which other currencies are measured. The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index Basket allows the trader to act on their US dollar bias with especially low transaction costs.|
Easy to Use: Do you believe the US dollar is likely to appreciate? You can buy the DJ FXCM Dollar Index Basket and benefit if it gains against four currencies. Think it will head lower? Selling is just as easy.
Low spreads: Strong liquidity across these four currencies leads to low spreads, making this an inexpensive way to trade the US dollar.
Euro: The other half of the most heavily traded currency pair in the world and a key measure of the US dollar’s value.
British Pound: Highly liquid and popular with forex traders, the pound retains great significance as the UK remains an important global financial hub.
Japanese Yen: A mainstay of the forex carry trade, the yen represents the third-largest economy in the world.
Australian Dollar: A titan in the fast-growing Asia/Pacific region, the AUD gives our index high yields and a link to commodity markets.
THE DOW JONES FXCM DOLLAR INDEX BASKET IS INTENDED TO BE MORE
RELEVANT, TRADABLE, AND EASIER TO USE THAN EXISTING DOLLAR INDICES.
The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index was designed with the trader in mind.
It avoids outdated currency pair selection and confusing methodology to
produce a more straightforward design and maximize utility for the trader.
The index basket is designed to be as easy to understand as it is to trade. At
inception date, the index reflects an equivalent $10,000 long position against
the euro, British pound, Japanese yen, and Australian dollar. The value of the
index is subsequently the average value of those US Dollar positions.
If the US Dollar rallies 100 pips against the euro, Australian dollar, Japanese yen, and British pound, the index will appreciate by approximately 100 points. It’s that simple.
With liquidity available 24 hours per day and five days per week, the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index Basket is an easy-to-use and inexpensive way to trade the US dollar.
