There are three time frames on the spreadsheet, the H4, D1 and W1 time frames. You are now going to list the trend direction on the H4, D1, and W1 time frames for each currency pair, by individual currency. In the image above you can see the USD pairs listed for an analysis of the USD pairs. Under each of the three time frame you will be given 3 options on the drop down menu:
1) Up = Uptrend 2) Down = Downtrend, or 3) No trend.
Once you fill out the direction of the 3 time frames for each currency pair, you can visually see if the same time frame or many time frames are lining up in the same direction on one currency. You can now see at a glance if the USD is strong or weak on one or more of the major time frames.
Then you can repeat the process for all 8 currencies we track, and 28 pairs total. It is possible that the market can have mixed signals, and it is also possible that one currency can be consistently strong or weak on just one of the three major time frames. The more consistent the trends in one direction, the better your chances of trading successfully.

Overview Of The Forex Market Analysis Spreadsheet
The forex market analysis spreadsheet is broken into 2 areas. The first area on the left is a list of 28 pairs with the 3 major time frames listed. There are drop down boxes in each time frame that allow you to identify and fill in the trends. You simply identify the trends for the 3 major time frames in all 28 pairs in groups with one common currency.
This information auto populates the second area on the (right side). This area consists of grids that represent individual currencies. There is a guide on the far right of these grids which you use to compare to see if there is consistent individual currency strength or weakness. These individual currency grids and guides are set up to look somewhat similar to The Forex Heatmap® forex heatmap. This will aid in the visual recognition of the alignment of the individual currency strength and weakness analysis of the charts/overall market. We use The Forex Heatmap® for our trade entry management. By conducting a daily forex market analysis this way, the analytical method we use matches the trade entry methods we use, so everything in our trading system is consistent.

Spreadsheet Fundamentals, Individual Currencies Versus Pairs
Every currency pair consists of two separate currencies, each currency has different properties. For example the EUR/USD has the EUR is an individual currency and the USD is an individual currency. You trade the pair but you must analyze the two currencies separately before trading. Most traders look at the pair but do not separate the currencies for analysis. You must separate them in order to find the individual currency strength or weakness, plus other characteristice, to give you the best possible overall market analysis, and individual pair analysis.
To analyze the EUR individual currency you must analyze all seven major currency pairs with the EUR on the left. When you evaluate all the seven pairs containing the EUR and analyze them you can discover whether the EUR individual currency is strong, weak, neutral or mixed. This can become a little challenging to keep track of when you are new to parallel and inverse analysis. That is where the spreadsheet becomes very handy. Just by providing the trends on the 28 pairs on 3 time frames, it will automatically “Separate” the currency pairs information into the individual currencies and provide a simple visual map of the forex that looks somewhat similar to The Forex Heatmap®.
