These are the approximate component weightings currently included in the FXTI® as of the beginning of each month. Over time, the individual market components and related weightings, as well as other aspects of calculation of the FXTI®, are subject to change. However, there is no requirement for the weightings of the FXTI® to be adjusted in response to future changes in GDP, credit stability or liquidity.
FX Trends Index™ (FXTI®)
The FX Trends Index™ (FXTI®) is a quantitative, rules-based methodology designed to reflect price movements across a basket of 11 foreign exchange futures contracts. The contracts are represented on either a “long” or “short” basis depending on recent price trends. With the ability to take long or short positions, the FXTI® is designed to capture the economic benefit over long time periods derived from both rising and declining price trends within a basket of global currencies.
The key characteristics of the FXTI® include:
11 FX futures weighted according to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), credit stability and liquidity, among other things
Long or short positions attempt to follow price trends by comparing the current component price to a customized weighted moving average
Directional position determination and component
rebalancing occurs monthly
