The personal composite trading instrument &OIL/CAD is used for trade and dynamics analysis of WTI oil vs the Canadian dollar, as well as multi-year comparative analysis of oil quoted against various currencies. For example, by building a percentage chart in the NetTradeX terminal for three instruments &OIL/CAD, &WTI/JPY and OIL (Fig. 1), it is evident that in the last two years (2013-2014) Oil exhibited almost identical dynamics against all of the three currencies; whereas Oil vs USD recorded the biggest decline, the decline in Oil vs JPY was relatively smaller.
