Finding correlations between the markets

Another way you can utilise multicharts is by finding correlations between the markets. Many markets influence each other in a direct or indirect form. Below you will find an example for the AUDUSD and NZDUSD currency pairs. You can notice that in general, they go up and down at a very similar time.

If you take, for instance, the EURUSD currency pair and gold you will see they are in correlation too. But in their case, the relation is quite different. Whenever the first asset is rising, the other one is falling and vice versa.

Comparing timeframes

You can also use the chart grids to compare the behaviour of the same asset on different timeframes. You may be fond of the short-term or long-term type of trading only. Still, it might be a good idea to check another timeframe in order to get a bigger picture. Examine two different timeframes for the NZDUSD currency pair on the screenshot below.
