The forex heat map illustrates the performance of major currencies relative to one another. Stronger currencies are color-coded green, while weaker are shaded red.

The pair is above prior bar's high
The pair is above prior bar's close but below the high
The pair is flat
The pair is below prior bar's close but above the low
The pair is below prior bar's low

The heat map updates in real-time. Forex traders use it to compare currency values against the previous day's close. The percentage value quantifies one currency's change against another's previous day's closing value.

What Is The Foreign Exchange Currency Heat Map?

A forex heat map is a visual depiction of currency strength. It is color-coded and lists the percentage change of one currency's value to another currency's previous day's closing value.

In foreign exchange trading, the heat map is used to easily decipher strong currencies from weaker ones. It is an intuitive interface that is among the most valuable trading tools in the financial markets today.

FAQs

Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions about the currency heat map.

How Can I Use The Heat Map To Trade The Forex Market?

Our currency heat map furnishes you with a comprehensive look at which currencies are performing well and which are lagging. With the heat map, finding active currency pairs, trends, and reversals becomes routine! In fact, most forex traders view this information as being a key to finding which pairs are best to trade.

Will The Currency Heat Map Improve My Foreign Exchange Trading Performance?

Absolutely! To trade foreign exchange pairs well, you must first know where the action is. The heat map shows you — green for bullish forex trading opportunities and red for bearish!

Does The Heat Map Produce Actionable Trade Ideas?

Yes. The percentage returns and green or red color-coded results are a current depiction of price with respect to the previous day's close. Depending on your risk appetite, these can be signals to immediately buy or sell a currency.

Remember, the heat map is similar to a candlestick or bar chart; the data is contextualized by using the previous period, bar, candle, or day as a reference. The red color indicates that price action is below the prior bar's low; if green, the price is above the prior bar's high. Grey suggests that a currency is flat; it is holding within the prior bar's range, very near the prior bar's close.

How Accurate Is The Heat Map?

The heat map is an extremely accurate tool for measuring one currency's strength against another. However, no tool is infallible. Before you invest money in forex, make sure that your investment objectives reflect your available time and capital.

I initially got misled by the ‘get rich quick schemes’ and then very quickly realized that is simply not possible. I then found an online course about forex and stocks and it changed my life.
