  2. Because forex is in the ebbs and flows of the entire financial market:

    1. Forex relative to Commodities – commodities like gold is priced in U.S. Dollar and USD is weighted against the 6 major world currencies : { Euro( EUR) = 57.6% weight, Japanese Yen (JPY) = 13.6%, Pound Sterling (GBP) = 11.9%, Canadian dollar (CAD) = 9.1%, Swedish krona (SEK) = 4.2%, Swiss franc (CHF) = 3.6%.

    2. Forex relative to Stockmarket – weaker host currency means a foreign currency can buy more stocks (e.g.weak JPY means cheaper NIKKEI 225 index).

    3. Forex relative to Bond Market / Fixed Income Market – Sovereign bonds like the U.S Treasuries/U.K.Gilts/German Bunds/Japan's JGB sometimes act as a leading indicator of a country's currency strength or weakness. High treasury yield is a reflection of trust in a country's ability to repay the sovereign bond they issued thereby giving a lift effect to the currency. ( As bond prices fall, yields increase).

    4. Forex relative to the Derivatives Market – trading a currency pair in leverage (CFDs and Spreadbetting). The currency being the underlying asset.

    I hope this helps. 🙂
