The US Dollar Index is a measurement of value of the US Dollar relative to six currencies as valued by their exchange rates. While half of the value is measured against the Euro, the other currencies in the basket are British Pound, Japanese Yen, Canadian Dollars, Swedish Krona and the Swiss Franc. The Dollar Index goes up when the US Dollar gains strength or value relative to other currencies.


The value of each currency is multiplied by its weight, which is a positive number when the U.S. dollar is the base currency. It's a negative number when the U.S. dollar is the quote currency. Euros and Pounds are the only two currencies where the U.S. dollar is the base currency because they're quoted in terms of the dollar.
