For example, by building a percentage chart in the NetTradeX terminal for two instruments &WTI/JPY and OIL - the continuous CFD on WTI oil futures in USD (Рict. 1), it is evident that two periods stand out in the last five years: from 2010 to 2012 Oil exhibited almost identical dynamics against both JPY and USD; from 2013-2014, Oil exhibits significantly higher growth dynamics against JPY compared with the growth against USD.
