Sentiment Index

The SWFX (Swiss Forex Bank & Marketplace) Sentiment Index can be a valuable tool for intraday currency trading. The publication of the sentiment index contributes to the overall mission of SWFX marketplace’s transparency and independence. The Index is based on transaction flow information and is designed to show long and short ratio in the most popular currencies and currency pairs consolidated by liquidity consumers and providers.

Liquidity consumers are represented by individual clients, brokers, investment companies and hedge funds. The sentiment ratio of this group is the percentage of longs or shorts in the overall amount of open trades, executed by the liquidity consumer. The index also includes liquidity from individual bids and offers of the foregoing participants if it is not provided on a regular basis.

Liquidity providers are participants of SWFX marketplace represented by centralized marketplaces and a number of banks which continuously provide ask and bid prices on the market. The sentiment ratio of this group is opposite to liquidity consumers’ data because, for each trade executed through SWFX, there are two equal and offsetting over-the-counter transactions.
