If currency correlation is close to 1 then currency pairs are highly correlated and they will move in the same direction. For example, EURUSD and GBPUSD mostly have a positive correlation because of the same USD currency in both currency pairs. USD is common in both currency pairs.
A negative correlation means currency pairs move in opposite directions. For example, USDCHF and EURUSD will mostly move in opposite directions because of differences in base and quote currency.
