STA Monthly Meeting – September 2010
The BNP Paribas Currency Bias Indicator is generated from the bank’s system of trading models and provides a ranking of the relative strength of currencies based on their current trading performance. The performance of each currency is compared to every other currency within the BNP Paribas system of models to identify currencies which may be gaining or losing relative strength, or are at an overextended position (bullish or bearish extremes). The system provides a good indicator of when currencies are set to accelerate trends, or are vulnerable to a correction (or even a change in trend). It can be deployed across multiply time scales to provide intraday automated trading signals, right through to providing a systematic portfolio hedging tool.
Ian Stannard is the Senior Currency Strategist for BNP Paribas in London, with 25 years experience in financial markets. Ian combines Fundamental Economic Research with Technical/Quantitative and Flow Analysis to provide FX Strategies.
