Take a deeper dive into each asset individually to understand its strength or weakness. On an asset's score breakdown page you can view the currencies' COT data, retail sentiment, seasonality, trend reading, GDP growth, inflation, unemployment, and interest rates all in one place.

Risk on / Risk off Gauge

How does the Risk on/Risk off gauge work?
The risk meter combines the price action of various risk-on/off assets and measures risk sentiment of the overall market. The score goes from -6 (strong risk-off reading) to +6 (strong risk-on reading).

How we use this to trade:
This metric is good for indicating which assets are going to be bullish or bearish. For example, if the risk meter is at -4, it suggests that USD, CHF and JPY could be bullish. If the risk meter is at +4, it suggests that AUD, CAD, NZD, GBP, EUR, XAUUSD, SPX500, could be bullish.

Carry Trade Scanner

How does the Carry Trader Scanner work? 
The table shows several different currency pairs. In order to calculate the swap rate, it takes the base currency rate minus the quote currency rate to get the interest rate divergence. The positive carry direction is telling you which direction you would have to trade in order to collect a positive swap. For instance if the base minus quote is positive, you would need to buy in order to get paid interest. If the difference between base and quote is negative, you would need to short in order to get paid interest.

How we use this to trade:
This metric is good for finding which pairs will pay positive swap rates. If you’re looking to take a carry trade, this table will show you which pairs to long or short in order to collect a swap. So why would traders want to see this? Some traders may look to avoid paying swaps so they’ll make sure they don’t hold a pair through the swap. Others might just want to collect interest though the carry trade regardless of price action because of their tolerance to potential lower moves.

Historical Backtest

How does the Historical Backtest work?
The Historical Backtest Scanner plots an asset’s price performance with the EdgeFinder’s score. You can see the score of the EdgeFinder change each day while price changes.

How we use this to trade:
This tool plots the market open and close price on top of the asset’s score. This is helpful for traders to see how an asset would have performed relative to its score every day. It is helpful in spotting changes in momentum, a continuation of trends, and signs of a weakening or strengthening market.

Economic News

How does the Economic News Page work?
The economic news page lists upcoming news events that may affect the markets. Users can filter the news events by currency, time until the event, and the impact

How we use this to trade:
News events can have a major impact in how the markets move. We use this information to decide how to manage our trades to avoid any major swings that may negatively affect our trades.

Retail Sentiment

How does retail sentiment work?
The retail sentiment metric displays data based on the positioning of retail traders. 

How we use this to trade:
For us, this is a contrarian signal producer.
If retail traders are 60% long (or more), then this is a bearish signal. If retail traders are 40% long (or less), then this is a bullish signal.
