In abstract we're evaluating the previous 90 days correlation to the previous 24 hours correlation of 2 cross forex pairs. The indicator that also must be constructed could have these inputs:

  1. Symbol1 = "EURUSD"
  2. Symbol2 = "GBPUSD"
  3. FastPeriod = 24 hours (Blue line)
  4. SlowPeriod = 90 days (Purple line)

Indicator wants to point out ranges for:

  1. 0.7
  2. -0.7
  3. 0.5
  4. -0.5

Buying and selling Guidelines

  1. If the RED line is above 0.7 and the BLUE line crosses under -0.5, then we open a purchase place. When the BLUE crosses above 0.5, then we shut our place.
  2. If the RED line is under -0.7 and the BLUE line crosses above 0.5, then we open a promote place. When the BLUE crosses under -0.5, then we shut our place.

For the pairs talked about on this instance, the indicator could be hooked up to the EURGBP pair for it to make sense.

Here is a BETA model of the indicator. Wants work.
