Hello fellow forum members,

I would like to ask how other traders here deal with currency correlation?

For example EUR/USD and USD/CHF have a -95% or greater correlation. So, if you are about to take a long on E/U, do you consider taking a short on the swissie? Or do you trade each pair individually, regardless of direction and regardless of the correlation?

Also, how short a time frame would the correlation be valid till? I've seen a reasonable correlation(eyeballing only) down to the 4hr TF. I havent tried looking for one on any lower tf's since i dont trade using them anymore.

Any opinions?
