US Dollar Index Facts

The US dollar index (USDX) is a measure of the value of the US dollar relative to the value of a basket of currencies of the majority of the US’s most significant trading partners.

The index is currently calculated by factoring in the exchange rates of six major world currencies. The EUR is the largest component of the index, making up almost 58 percent (57.6%) of the basket.
