One of the more appealing aspects of the forex market, beyond the 24-hour always open trading, is the fact that there’s always a bull market somewhere amongst the pairs. The idea of buying a stock or futures contract or a forex pair is much more familiar to most people, especially since most of us are already familiar with investing. Investing and trading do have two completely different mindsets. For investors, the whole idea is ownership: to own more shares of a company or mutual fund or even ETF (electronically
traded funds).

Most people incorrectly believe that trading is buying low and selling high . . . wrong! That is actually investing. Now, of course, investors do hope that their holding will increase in value, but that is secondary to ownership.
Traders don’t own anything; in fact, they don’t want to because the goal in trading is to profit from price movement. Instead of owning, traders control shares, contracts, lots, or pairs with leverage. Now what does all this have to do with playing U.S. dollar strength or weakness? 

Traders understand that in order to profit from price movement they must buy and short. That’s right, “short.” After all, trading means making money in up and down markets. If you were only to play one side of the market you would consistently miss opportunities to benefit from when the U.S. dollar
moves a pair lower.
Consider this move. The U.S. dollar gains strength on the euro. The resulting move on the chart would be weakness, a sell-off and even a downtrend in the EUR/USD (euro/U.S. dollar). In order to profit from this
relationship a trader would have to short or sell the EUR/USD. Here’s another example, one that has hit closer to home for most people. Crude oil has been on a rollercoaster as of late, reaching new highs and selling off to significant lows.

In fact, over the course of less than six months, crude oil has moved over $100. Crude oil has a strong correlation to the commodity currency of the U.S. dollar/Canadian dollar (USD/CAD). The USD/CAD is affected by U.S. dollar movement but as with all forex analysis, you must consider the other side of the pair, in this case the Canadian dollar. The Canadian dollar or “loonie” is affected by crude oil prices because
Canada is a huge exporter of oil. When oil strengthens, this helps the loonie strengthen. If oil weakens, it can take the loonie down with it. 

So as the crude oil market sells off, the loonie has been weakening against the U.S. dollar, which results in a downtrend on the chart of the USD/CAD. The only way to benefit from that movement in the forex would be to short the USD/CAD and profit from the weakness.
