What do you think is the best way to deal with currency correlation as a Day Trader due to correlations between pairs changing so much. No one wants to unknowingly double their risk on two or three pairs that's correlated and ends up all hitting your stops because of correlation. Would you prefer to always check the currency correlation table every time before you add a second or third Intra-Day trade or is that too much to do?

I think the correlation is a myth. Each currency moves at its own pace so no correlation is required.

Currency correlation is definitely a thing. Some currency pairs are related in value and move together.

Forex traders will use currency correlations to either hedge their trades, increase their risk or use it for creating value.

When actually placing a trade, consider whether the markets are currently correlated, whether one market leads another, and whether the price is diverging.

I fully agree.
