Euro Index ($EXY) monthly chart

barchart's new 'beta' site now offers charts of what they call the 'Euro Index' (symbol $EXY). they don't explain what it is, but I am assuming it is the trade weighted index behind ICE Euro Index futures. if so, the currency weightings are as follows:

U.S. Dollar: 31.55%
Japanese Yen: 18.91%
British Pound Sterling: 30.56%
Swedish krona: 7.85%
Swiss franc: 11.13%

interesting long-term chart:



that is perhaps the ugliest chart I have ever seen.
