Effective on February 4, 2019, the Federal Reserve Board has changed the methodology used to construct the trade-weighted dollar indexes in the H.10, G.5, and G.5A releases. These changes, designed to improve the alignment of the currency weights with current U.S. trade patterns, include revisions to the calculation of the weighting scheme and country composition. In addition, the former Major index has been renamed as the Advanced Foreign Economies (AFE) index, and the Other Important Trading Partners (OITP), index has been renamed as the Emerging Market Economies (EME) index. The Federal Reserve Board will continue to release the dollar indexes based solely on trade in goods until December 31, 2019. These indexes are referred to as "Broad - goods only", "Major - goods only", and "OITP - goods only". For more information on the new methodology, see "Revisions to the Federal Reserve Dollar Indexes."

Please visit the Currency Weights page (http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/H10/Weights) for current weights and country composition of the Broad Index. The source for exchange rates not listed in the table above but used in the calculation of the Broad, AFE, and EME indexes is Bloomberg.
