When you calculated the correlation between indices, did you use dollar-denominated figures or figures based in the home-country currencies?

(i.e. did you factor out exchange rate flucuations or do they cloud the results?)


The correlation is calculated off of daily percent change. The historical prices for each index are consistent with their home currency. IE: Stoxx 50 is calculated in Euros. Looking at the percent change then smoothes any differences that price or currency could create.

Excellent article! Very informative.
