Forex Ranking, Rating And Score For Week 24 / 2017

The Top 10 of the Ranking and Rating list for the coming week shows the following stronger currencies being well represented for going long: the NZD(4X) followed by the CHF(2X) with the JPY(2X). The weaker currencies are the GBP(5X) followed by the CAD(3X).
A nice combination for coming week may be e.g:

  • GBP/NZD with the CAD/JPY
  • GBP/CHF with the NZD/CAD
  • GBP/JPY with the  CAD/CHF

    Ranking and Rating list

    Analysis is based on TA charts for all the major currency pairs. Every week the Forex ranking rating list will be prepared for the weekend. All the relevant Time Frames will be analyzed and the ATR and Pip value will be set.


    For analyzing the best pairs to trade looking from a longer-term perspective the last 13 weeks Currency Classification can be used in support.

    This was updated on 11 June 2017 and is provided here for reference purposes:

    Strong: USD, JPY, CHF. The preferred range is from 6 to 8.

    Neutral: EUR, GBP. The preferred range is from 4 to 5.

    Weak: AUD, NZD, CAD. The preferred range is from 1 to 3.

    When comparing the 13 weeks Currency Classification with the pairs mentioned in the Ranking List above some would then become less interesting. On the other hand, these pairs are at the top of the list partly also because of their volatility. It seems best to take positions for a short period then and take advantage of the high price movements.

    With the FxTaTrader Strategy, these pairs are not traded because these would be trades in the 4 Hour chart or in a lower Time Frame. Nevertheless, they may offer good chances for the short term trader.
