Broad Daily: View    Monthly: View

The broad index is a weighted average of the foreign exchange values of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of a large group of major U.S. trading partners. The index weights, which change over time, are derived from U.S. export shares and from U.S. and foreign import shares. For details on the construction of the weights, see the article (73 KB PDF) in the Winter 2005 Federal Reserve Bulletin.
