« Back to Glossary Index

The term correlation is generally used in statistics, but in the forex market, it helps us understand the mutual relationship between Forex currencies, commodities, and indices.

There can be a positive or negative correlation between trading instruments. Positive Correlation: There is a positive correlation when the prices of both instruments move in the same direction. For instance, the EUR/USD & GBP/USD has a positive correlation.

Negative Correlation: There is a negative correlation when the prices of both instruments move in opposite directions. For instance, the EUR/USD & USD/JPY have a negative correlation.
