I have found that when the US indexes (NASDAQ, DOW, S&P 500) gain (or lose) so does the Euro as part of the EUR/USD pair. There is a positive correlation. Why does this occur? I had the thought that as risk becomes less popular and people sell their stocks they put the money into treasury bonds, possibly driving up the USD. Does anyone know for certain what drives this phenomenon? Best answer points available for good concise information. Thank you.
