Then I tried lining it up under a /CL chart for the past 20 years. Interesting outlay where it's noticed that /NQ and /6E started around the same year; /NQ late 2003, /6E, Euro at beginning of 2004. (Leading up to 2nd term of the "Bush" years & post 911) And correlation % of /CL with the /ES and /NQ significantly dropped off big time just this past summer after being steady at a high correlation % the past few ("Obama") years. Hmm, the "globalists" at work?
And another chart of /ES in correlation comparison with the other futures. Recent significant rise in positive correlation with gold, /GC after being negative within this year. Happened also in the 2007 election year. And in reverse in the 2000 election year.

Regarding to the original post from the TS i want to mention that i've started with correlation analysis at my focused instruments too, to get an insight which one to choose to don't multiply the risk when trading them. But then i've learned that isn't reliable to my kind of trading, because correlation can vary and we can't make any predictions. For me it was much more informational to look at the correlation of drawdowns, because that is, in the end, whats important and the complete strategy is already considered.
