The personal composite trading instrument &XAUCNH is used for trade and dynamics analysis of Gold vs the Yuan, as well as multi-year comparative analysis of Gold vs. USD and Japanese yen. For example, by building a percentage chart (Chart %) in the NetTradeX terminal for three instruments &XAUCNH, XAUUSD and &XAUJPY (Рict. 1), it is evident that two periods stand out in the last five years: from 2010 to 2012, Gold exhibited almost identical dynamics against the three assets; from 2013-2014, Gold against CNH exhibits almost identical decline dynamics as that of XAUUSD, while Gold against JPY varied substantially less.
