EUR is the risk side of EUR/USD, while USD/CAD represents the USD side as opposite. Both EUR/USD or USD/CAD as anchor currency pairs, serve as the main drivers of EUR/CAD prices.
The premiere indicator for price drivers are correlations which provide mathematical proof to anchor pair drivers. Correlation enables us to know, for example, if EUR is in control of its cross pairs, and is a double trade located as EUR/USD and EUR/CAD, or USD/CAD and EUR/CAD. It also informs as to whether currency markets are trading in a risk on mode or favor USD as non risk.
This information is vitally important because markets trading as risk on mode with EUR/USD and EUR/CAD positive correlations contain wider ranges and more profit potential than USD/CAD and EUR/CAD.
