Who we are
Forex Databank (FXDB) is a one-stop shop for all your research needs in forex trading.
Created by a small group of traders, FXDB, is a non-commercial, non-profit organization. Its sole mission is to help forex traders analyse important macro trends, search for price deviations and establish trading opportunities with a higher probability of success.
What we do
We turn data into actionable insights.
FXDB tools enable forex traders to look at different currency pairs from a fundamental perspective. We cover 22 countries and one currency zone, which allows us to establish a trading bias on more than 500 currency pairs.
How we do it
We search for evidence of popular delusions and the madness of crowds.
The idea is to find anomalies and bullish or bearish divergences that will break the trend, not prolong it. Our approach is, essentially, contrarian and therefore painful, but also highly rewarding. Most of the time, we are studying simple interdependencies, such as correlations between a country’s exchange rate and its economic health, monetary policy, historical performance and sentiment.
List of Currencies
We cover 23 currencies:
Australian dollar (AUD), Brazilian real (BRL), Canadian dollar (CAD), Swiss franc (CHF), Chilean peso (CLP), Chinese yuan (CNY), Czech koruna (CZK), Euro (EUR), Pound Sterling (GBP), Hungarian forint (HUF), Israeli new shekel (ILS), Indian rupee (INR), Japanese yen (JPY), Korean won (KRW), Mexican peso (MXN), Norwegian krone (NOK), New Zealand dollar (NZD), Polish zloty (PLN), Russian rouble (RUB), Swedish krona (SEK), Turkish lira (TRY), US dollar (USD) and South African rand (ZAR).
