Currency Strength Heatmap Table

This table shows the percentage change in price of various currencies and metals against each other. Data is collected daily at 4:00pm Eastern time for relevant pairs traded on the OANDA fxTrade platform.

  • Blue swatches show those currencies or metals that have fallen lower in value against the base currency over the time period chosen.
  • Red swatches show those currencies or metals that have gained in value against the base currency over the time period chosen.
  • A white swatch indicates minimal movement.
  • The lighter the color, the smaller the movement against the other currency; the darker the color, the greater the movement. The color gradations are shown in the heatmap value indicator below the heatmap.

The heatmap can be viewed in 2 modes, Classic and Sorted:

Classic Heatmap

To read the table, find the currency/metal you’re interested in along the top of the table. The colored swatches in its column indicate how it has fared against each of the currencies/metals on the left.

Sorted Heatmap

The colored swatches in each column indicate how the currency or metal in the bar at the center of the table (“the base currency”) has fared against other currencies or metals traded against it. The swatches in each column are sorted based on percentage change against the base currency. Note that by default only tradable currency pairs are shown in this heatmap. To see the change stats for non-tradable pairs as well select the corresponding checkbox above the heatmap.
