General information on the exchange rate

The exchange rate is the official exchange rate of two currencies (foreign exchange). Each foreign currency has a specific exchange rate. The most important foreign currencies are usually traded on the respective foreign exchange markets and officially quoted on the foreign exchange exchanges. The exchange rates are normally available for all foreign currencies. However, the exchange rates of two other currencies can be used to calculate them. The U.S. Dollar or Euro is then usually considered to be the lead currency or vehicle currency.

Price and Quantity Quotation

In order to express the interrelation between two currencies, price quotation (the price per unit of a foreign currency expressed in euros) and quantity quotation (the price per euro expressed in units of foreign currency) are differentiated. Price quotation is now used consistently across the EU. The exchange rate is always shown as the quantity of foreign currency exchanged for one euro.

Example price quotation 0,914 Euro = 1 U.S. Dollar
Example quantity quotation1,0944 U.S. Dollar = 1 Euro

Upgrading und downgrading of the exchange rate

If the exchange rate changes, i.e. the price used to exchange two currencies is called the upgrading or downgrading of the respective currency. For example, this can be caused by massive buying or selling of currencies by central banks in order to regulate the currencies accordingly. This may be necessary, to avoid growth differences between countries. This may be necessary to avoid growth differences between countries, for example, the political stability, interest rate levels, inflation or foreign trade problems of these countries. The foreign exchange can also be devalued or revalued as a result of speculative transactions of international investors

Exchange rates are based on different quotations used in the currency calculator

Exchange rates of currencies are usually obtained from the foreign exchange market and they are not consistent:

  • The exchange rate quoted as the buying rate will be the (lower) buying rate of banks and forex traders.
  • The exchange rate as offered price is the (higher) selling rate.
  • The average exchange rate between the two is referred as the middle rate.
  • The difference between the buying and selling rate is called the spread.

Also, the exchange rate may fluctuate based on the transaction on the foreign exchange spot market or forward market. The exchange rates for foreign currencies (banknotes and coins) also tend to deviate significantly from the exchange rates due to higher transaction prices.

Quotations for the Euro reference rate of the ECB

As mentioned above, at 14:15 each business day, the euro reference rate is determined by a voting procedure between national and international central banks. The price quotation is then fixed at a specific time of day, unlike the continuous quotations on the foreign exchange markets.
